About the exhibition
The winner of the 5th edition of the Premio Arnaldo Pomodoro per la Scultura – Aleksandra Domanović – takes over the spectacular Sala del Parnaso at GAM with the site-specific sculptural installation “The Falseness of Holes”. Inspired by the wax sculpture “a Portinaia” by sculptor Medardo Rosso, the exhibition analyses the slight border between matter and the digital world in modern sculpture.
Into more details
Like the Italian sculptor used photography to investigate reality and transcend the physical element, so Domanović has created an interaction between a work by Medardo Rosso and virtual reality thanks to Augmented Reality. This way, traditional sculpture and new technologies can interact with each other. The new concept of sculpture perfected by the artist can be seen through a specific software which can be downloaded on pc, smartphones and tablets.
