Cited by Forbes among the 30 most influential European artists under 30, Edoardo Tresoldi isn’t want to shy from making a statement. His awe-inspiring sculptures and installations, meticulously crafted out of wire mesh, take after architecture. The result is ghost-like structures that blend into their surroundings.
“I see in wire mesh poetics the depiction of a mental projection or, when related to history, the representation of what used to exist but is no longer there,” Tresoldi told Designboom. “Through transparency, I’m also able to keep a direct link with the environment and to establish a new kind of immersive experience for visitors.”
One of his more remarkable installations includes a restoration of the Basilica paleocristiana of Siponto. With this installation, he reimagined the architectural remains of the 13th-century chapel. The result is a unique convergence between contemporary art and archaeology.
“I deeply feel the charm of places and I recognize their expressive potential,” says Tresoldi. “My main interest is the relationship between the different elements of the landscape and how contemporary languages dialogue with each other, building its emotional structure”
