"Marta e l'Elefante": the protagonist of the Fuorisalone 2021

Milan

The monumental sculpture "Marta e l'Elefante" by Stefano Bombardieri has been the absolute protagonist of the Fuorisalone 2021 taking place in SuperstudioPiù of Via Tortona in Milan. 

 

Superstudio entrusted the symbol of the rebirth from the pandemic to art with the Oblong's exhibition that stages Stefano Bombardieri's sculpture, showing the superhuman effort of a child and an elephant. With an engineering program, Marta and her friend were able to tell you their story over the phone,by scanning the QR code at the base with your smartphone!

 

Oblong Contemporary Art Gallery proposed the exhibition-event “SURPRISE! Art tells" curated by the architect Ettore Mocchetti, and gave a phone call to visitors believing that the idea of ​​making Stefano Bombardieri's work speak is a poetic way to bring art into people's hearts. Paola Greci's project makes use of the text by Francesca Di Fazio, the voices of Jasmine Botta, Savino Paparella and Brian Ayres with the development of Diapason Digital.

 

After all, this highly emblematic artwork is a reminder for each of us that we should never give up, as the human being is able to achieve even the most impossible things.
