“Cerimonia gives life to a presence capable of expressing itself through its cyclicity, inserting itself in the process that already lives the space. The intervention, accompanying the state of abandonment of the area for about a year, will then trigger a crasis between this process and the celebratory one of architecture” – Edoardo Tresoldi
Also today here we are with a special article dedicated to Street Art and its protagonists.
Among our most interesting artists we find the young artist Edoardo Tresoldi.
Considered by Forbes one of the most promising artists of his generation, with his art Edoardo Tresoldi enchanted many people around the world.
With an unmistakable style, the Italian artist creates large-scale works using a particular material and technique: woven wire mesh. Often dialoguing with the space and the territory, Tresoldi’s works are configured as architectural masterpieces.
Among the noteworthy works, we mention Cerimonia, a site-specific installation realized in Bologna by TRAC, Tresoldi Academy.
Tresoldi Academy is a didactic project born thanks to Tresoldi’s STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO and YAC, Young Architects Competitions. This reality wants to bring 500 young people (selected from all over the world!) closer to contemporary art, contributing also to the valorization and protection of the territory.
The realization of Cerimonia was strongly desired to give new life to the peripheral area of Ex Mercatone Uno in Bologna, owned by Unipol Group, which supported the project. Thanks to the scientific collaboration of the group of architects G124, created by Renzo Piano to help the suburbs, Cerimonia was installed in an abandoned area of 4600sqm. Imposing, 5.30 meters high and built with wire mesh and waste materials collected on site, Cerimonia, closely connected with the land that welcomes it, wants to be a modern monument, made by the city for the city, a symbol of cultural rebirth and not only.
Cerimonia by Edoardo Tresoldi will be open to the public throughout 2021, in total safety. And what are we waiting for? We can’t wait to see it!
