In his sculptures, time is translated through the combination of horizontal and vertical coordinates, which produce erosion or sedimentation and represent the relationship between nature and man.

The quest for a form of time has defined a whole imagination of the ancient. Time transforms, alters pre-existing forms. Giorgio Andreotta Calò ties the concept of contemporary to a much larger temporal dimension. In his sculptures, time is translated through the combination of horizontal and vertical coordinates, which produce erosion or sedimentation and represent the relationship between nature and man. The series of works Clessidra consists of wooden poles used to moor boats in the Venetian Lagoon, worn by the tides and the incessant movement of maritime traffic. Tapering in the middle, these poles are the place of a tension between their own verticality and the horizontality of the water surface, which eventually reaches an unsustainable limit.

Con la grande mostra dedicata ad Ai Weiwei (23 settembre 2016-22 gennaio 2017) per la prima volta Palazzo Strozzi diventa uno spazio espositivo unitario che comprende facciata, Cortile, Piano Nobile e Strozzina.

L’arte contemporanea esce dalla Strozzina e si espande sia a livello espositivo che di comunicazione, in uno scenario in cui Palazzo Strozzi partecipa attivamente all’avanguardia artistica del nostro tempo.

Per questo motivo le informazioni relative alla mostra Ai Weiwei. Libero e il programma di mostre e attività future dedicato all'arte contemporanea saranno consultabili direttamente al sito www.palazzostrozzi.org e sui canali social di Palazzo Strozzi.
