A magical paradox. The fusion between Vedova and Piano
Written by Marisa Chelodi

Art and architecture, architecture for art, architecture and art... The possible semantic combinations are countless. The two words live among concentric interactions between signified and signifier, in a constant tension, searching for balance, which now seems to have been reached - masterfully and magically - in the Fondazione Vedova’s new venue at the Magazzini del Sale, on the Zattere.

There Vedova’s art and Piano’s architecture find a perfect fusion point and liquefy into a scenery of light and movement. Piano’s architecture chooses paradox as a solution formula for the potential conflict between the displayed objects and the displaying space.

 

Almost denying its tectonic nature, architecture is melted away into a game of light and movement, into a challenge to gravity, and leaves the stage to the work of art and to the spectator. Architecture becomes the movement of the works of art in the light: from the entrance in the blinding light of the Zattere, to the semi-dark bottom of the warehouse where the works wait. The dynamism of the setting recalls Vedova’s conceptual dynamism, whose gestures of light and colour gave birth to canvases which now fluctuate in the warehouse, thanks to highly technological machinery magically revealing their presence on the stage, in total safety.
