Castello di Ama

Giorgio Andreotta Calò



TANA (notes on the poetics of the project)

In the vertical relationship between heaven and earth, tana sits in the middle lodging itself like a liver to the anatomy of Ama's landscape.

Generated by addition from the earth, this organ developed and grew in the land to be finally extirpated from it. 

The two principles of sculpture, additive and subtractive, shape this work.

In it on the floor is projected the sky, on its dark vault fixed to shine the stars of quartz and calcite. 

The void left by this symbolic form is the space of imagination that we can now inhabit.
