Sottilissima n.1, 1995
Please allow four to six weeks for the artwork to arrive after purchase.
Following in his Sottilissima series, Consagra created this sculpture which offers the least possible thickness of material to create the perfect evocation of a presence-absence. The work acts as a sort of diaphragm delineating the tension between space and object, a steel sail which exists as an almost imperceptible suspension in nothingness.
This frontality allows Consagra to explore a mode of interaction which is more direct, as art and audience are opened up to one another in a two-dimensional dialogue. The Sottilissime propose an offer to the viewer’s imagination as they act as veils which reveal and conceal the space around them.
