Albero Sonico (Sonic Tree)
“Albero Dimmi (Tell me Tree)” is the new artwork by Marco Guglielmi based on the concept of “ComPUSter”, the installation winner of the 5th Award Florence Biennale.
“Foresta Dimmi”. Venezia, Chiesa dell’Abbazia della Misericordia.
This artwork investigates the decline of social, economic and scientific systems whereof only nature escapes. Nature itself addresses us a pressing question in the form of a copper structure modeled as a question mark, to which the artist gave the name “Tell me”.
“Foresta Dimmi” (Tell me Forest) was a site-specific installation for the Church of Misericordia in Venice in November 2017, during the finissage of Venice Biennale. Under the vault of the medieval starry roof, the “Tell Me’s” stood to manifest the urgency of an incessant question about the why of things.
“Albero Dimmi” (Tell me Tree) is the next step of the concept: the installation comes out in a natural environment, albeit contextualized in the urban fabric. The question about the why of things spreads directly out from nature itself, en-plein-air. It is a silent question in a non-verbal language which is – first and foremost – an energetic and emotional exchange. The artwork intends to shed light on the “difficult paradox” (as the artist himself describes it ) of using words – an arbitrary invention for social interplay pretending to describe emotions and replace sensitiveness.
Albero Dimmi” is based on the ideas of sustainability, environmental preservation, biodiversity giving shape to a relationship between nature and culture as a synergistic system where the respect of all forms of life prevails.
