About The Artwork

Full time empty time is a work made with a clock, a tire and epoxy resin with pigment. The work is part of the "Timemachine" installation, consisting of 12 sculptures all made with old tires trussed on the street, worked, modified and sculpted. The velvety and opaque black color of the tires contrasts with the shiny and metallic black of the resins. The work analyzes the circularity of time as opposed to the circularity of the wheel of the car that turns endlessly. The work also emphasizes the circularity in the recycling and reuse of materials, which through the passage of time changes their form and function. No longer a car tire, but a sculpture depicting an abstract shape. The installation was exhibited in various exhibitions including at the "Cro Art Gallery" in Vienna in 2016, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Austria, and published in the catalog of the publishing house "Il Mondo di Suk".
