About The Artwork

The work is part of the research that I've been carrying out for the last two years and that moves around the representation of oneself. There is no center or a single reading in my research, in this sort of self-representation. We are solid and we are light together. There is not a single saying and a single form. Instead, there is a constellation of profiles and identities, of pulsating hearts in it that give voice to a choir. There is the study of partial anatomies of that human body disintegrated in several and several separate parts that so much seems to correspond to the precarious human conditions. And there is this last element of my research, the plexiglass, which give me the opportunity to express the light that is in us, through real, ancient, primordial forms. A human anatomy transfigured into a few elements or parts that then stretches and divides in the space between stone and plastic. The forms that seem and want to emerge from the nothingness of existence, visible only under the microscope, are solitary emancipations of matter without monumental stories to tell but nevertheless bearing memory. Here are our momentary lives. Here are our microscopic doubts exaggerated to the right point to make them visible, almost obvious... lonely and solidly imprisoned who want to be free. The oneself represented therefore and anyway through sculpture. The will, to which I have now consciously abandoned myself, is to want to give back to the sculpture that identity role of human sensations and denials that today more than before represent the challenges for each of us. It is clear that all my research wants to be a writing in fragments, without pretensions of globality, a postmodern deconstruction: fragments of one's time that survive everyday life. I do not want to create a unified, complete and violent vision, rather to create a solid and rarefied poem together, subtle, a narrative in which unequal formal identities coexist but still linked, all, to a poetic, lived without lies. Antonella Gerbi. In her artistic search carves and infuses into her works the vibrant energy of presence. Though plexiglas she inserts in her work a new glare of reality, a breath of lightness that shows presence as well as absence. Her works seems to come out of the blue, out of existence, out of those simple question that have still no adequate answers. Inner sculptures, meta-sculptures that are almost only visible underneath a microscope lens, lonely liberation of matter with no horizon, no big story to tell, they multiply and prosper in everybody’s existential loneliness. “Here there are our temporary existences, our microscopic problems, made just big enough to be visible, becoming almost obvious….Microscopic loneliness that swear for free identity. “ Antonella Gerbi Born in 1976, she graduates in Graphic Design in 1995 and attends sculpture classes in Pietrasanta (LU) held by the Master Cesare Riva. In 1999 she graduates in Conservation and Restoration in Venice where she opens a sculpture studio together with the Master Renato Mari. In 2007 she graduates in Sculpture at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan and in 2008 she attains a master degree in Visual Arts and teaching. In 2009 she undergoes a training journey on international sculpture through America and New Zealand. Her artistic research develops around the concept of impermanence that surrounds us, investigated through observation of everyday things and their evolution, growth and passing. Since 1997, when she won the Viviani award for Sculpture in Nova Milanese, she has strictly committed herself to her artistic career by promoting her works and taking part in numerous exhibitions, symposia and events in Italy and abroad.
