Perdita di stato 


Constantly becoming

“Two sculptural portrayals that highlight the volumes of each face of the mountain, but through the collapsing of their mass. In fact, in creating them, the “real” forms impressed into a rubber cast – negative imprint of the model – were reproduced without the aid of the support found in sculptural practice that offers dimensional rigidity to the mould. Borrowing the technique of mountain casts – dating back to the early twentieth century – Pugno first constructed the portrait of the mountain’s sides through observing hundreds of images and then purposefully directed the subsidence of their forms”.
