I was a nervous heat
Oli Bonzanigo, with the sculptural project in porcelain I was a nervous heat, will be put in dialogue with the video works. The artwork is a spinal column divided in sections, a study of the relationships of mimesis between architectural shapes and human anatomy. The artist continues the investigation on the relationship between human and matter, on the action of man and the movements of matter as vehicle of cultural and geographical contaminations.
