Attrazione 2009

Description: installation
Materials: balloon inflated with helium, cotton yarn, stone, tailor pin

The balloon represents the soul.
What is holding it is the weight of the physical being (the stone).
The attraction for going up is strong, but waiting for it there is a pin on the ceiling: it challenges gravity, aiming menacingly at the target.
The work represents the transition between what we see and what we don’t know yet.
