DETAILS

Ancient civilizations have left important evidence of their succession in the ages.

Angelo describes with graphic and chromatic power the vibrant image of a sculpture from the Easter’s island.
The proportions are altered in a huge vision, which is projected from the bottom up.
Time-worn stones are charged with a hot digital light. The bright red of the halo digitizes the image.
In the work the ancient symbologies meet with the technological, spatial and futuristic civilization through
a language that is mimetic and synthetic at the same time.

Angelo’s vision is mythological, he scrupulously draws on the iconographic and archaeological repertoire
to then innovate it by transferring it into a metaphysical, alienating, dehumanized visual dimension.
