As part of his exhibition “Acqua alta High Tide” at the gallery Poggiali in Florence, the Italian artist Fabio Viale presents a monumental work made of marble detritus. Truncated statues, shards of crockery, limbs and heads of stone, bits of white marble, are transformed into a giant and impressive waterfall, taking on a new shape. An installation that speaks to us of decadence and rebirth, of the possibility of giving works of art a new life and a different meaning. The art installation, entitled “Emergences”, is a transposition of the performance “Root’la” made by the artist in the Gioia quarry in Carrara, Italy. It thus reproduces a kind of art waste that questions our perception of the beauty and temporality of the existence of an artwork.
