Scolpire il Tempo is the fifth issue of a new series of publications issued by Wilfried Lentz Rotterdam. The 5th gallery publication Scolpire il Tempo (2010) is published on the occasion of Giorgio Andreotta Calò’s solo exhibition at the gallery where the artist showed for the first time his Clessidra sculptures. Texts by Mara Ambrozic and Marco Pasi.
Giorgio Andreotta Calò produced a series of bronze sculptures made from deteriorated mooring poles found in the Laguna of Venice. Through time, the salt water and the tide has transformed these poles into rough and fantastic looking conical shapes. These shapes are used for his new series of sculptures. For the gallery Calò has created a special environment where these sculptures can be experienced in an atmosphere, reminiscent of their place of origin.
