THE SPATIALISM AND THE INFINITE DIMENSION

Archetto Freedom® embraces from the ‘Spatialism’ the liberty of the creative act. The vision is that of Lucio Fontana: founder of the movement, that privileged the creative will, more than the finished product. The artist used to investigate the system to develop space with emptiness and light: anticipating the research on movement of ‘Light and Space’, born in the ’60 and ’70 in the United States, and of other artists, like the renowned Dan Flavin, that ventured in luminous works of art using the neon. Generating light with the cold cathode and shaping the glass with the blowtorch, has generated in the last 50 years creations that have inordinate charm, but also great fragility: often unique, but also immovable, artworks.
Today, Archetto Freedom® provides with a malleable light profile, shapeable with your hands, that permits to construct free shapes in the space: free forms for the interpretation of the viewer. In this way, every project becomes a unique artwork, reusable for other interpretations, given the possibility to reshape the light profile, repeatedly.
