“GOMINTOLI” (2003)

Rubber tube, green liquid

Various dimensions

With this rubber balls installation, Laura Ambrosi is proceeding with research related to the garment, clothing, the form of costumes and fashion that she began several years back, with ends that are ironic and hyper-realistic. They are works that belong to a design of everyday life, observed with the thunderstruck eyes of Alice wandering in Wonderland and, as in Lewis Carroll’s tale, eyes filled with magic and cruelty, sleep and wakefulness; but they can also be read as the prototypes for a design without functions where the dream of modernity in the world project, has been replaced by the disenchanted prophecy of a present that needs to be traveled with everyday anxiety, moving through it enjoying its momentary joys and accepting its latent sorrows.(Marco Filippa)
