After the solo exhibition at Cadogan Contemporary in London, Cicconi creates a site-specific monumental installation dedicated to the phenomenon of refraction. Investigating the relationship between matter and light, the artist continues his investigation of art and science, space and time. The new installation is a triangular prism that manifests a dual identity. The sculpture by day absorbs the surrounding energy, reflecting the space around it. At sunset the matter begins to dissolve, reaching complete transparency during the night. When illuminated, the large glass plates take their colours from the phenomenon of the Northern Lights. Real colours of the aurora borealis were coded and these artificial datas were put into the huge glass plates. Hundreds of people made the trip to Favignana (Sicily) for the unveiling of the installation, thanks to the vision of Jacopo Pizzicannella, ‘PicNic Affair’ and the institutions. Curatorial text by Maria Abramenko. A very special thanks to the City of Favignana, the magical land of Sicily and Daniele Orlando.
