June - August 2001
Installation

Micaela di Vivero

Micaela di Vivero creates surfaces, membranes, screens, borders, skins and wrappings that talk about boundaries, differences and similarities. He have been using these surfaces to make sculptures that create poetics. Some of these sculptures have more recognizable forms like torsos, traffic cones or dresses, and others have more abstract forms like vessels or drops. They are displayed in groups or multiplicities in the form of installations. Their ethereal quality makes them have a stronger emotional and visual impact, as does their gathering.

De Vivero builds interior and exterior spaces within the object, but also within the installation. His pieces show a skin that you have left, which is the wrapping of something; it covers it, but makes it desirable at the same time. This skin becomes the boundary.
