Fascinating: Italian sculptor designs bizarre bodies

Contemporary art is perhaps more a matter of personal taste than older and more established work. Sometimes you need to know a bit about the whole context in order to understand a piece of art, and not everyone wants art to be that much work.

But once in a while you come across an artist who stops people in their tracks. Whether you like it or not, you can't deny their vision catches your interest!  

When it comes to Sara Renzetti and Antonello Serra, most of us will spend the first few minutes readjusting our eyes. What these two Italian sculptors have created will make your head spin.

 

Migrants OVIS Viandanti, fedeli alla maniera degli umani uomini, celebrano l’esilio dalla costanza e dal principio d’ identità. Il desiderio di transire, la gioia al cospetto dell’esser ridotti a mirar il terminale incerto. Bandita la fierezza e la fedeltà, si trasuda una nuova dimensione della coscienza che, nel corpo stesso, oramai bestemmiato, boccheggia l’epopea di una nuova esistenza. Siamo nella transumanza. Autunno e primavera Genti, mandrie e pastori. Wayfarers faithful to the way of human people, celebrating the exile from the constancy and the principle of identity. The desire to transition, the joy of being reduced to beholding the uncertain end. Banned the pride and loyalty, it exudes a new dimension of consciousness that, in the body itself now blasphemed, gasps the epic of a new existence. We are in transhumance.

épave 35'' 29' 54° N 12'' 36' 18° E Nel mare. Acqua nell acqua, estesa e libera, nell aria piove. Piante goccie e valanghe. Croce di me sovente espatrio. Fiume il corpo, ondoso transita, in oceanico strazio, il moto al divenire Ove la prua è la poppa. Montagna di me, sotto, i metri acquosi sgorgano Mi obelisco in sella al ponte e cado cavallo. Io finisco Resto. In the sea. Water in the water, extensive and free, it rains in the air. Cried drops and avalanches. Cross than me often emigrate. River the body, wave passes, in oceanic agony, the motion to become. Where the prow is the stern. Mountain than me, below, the aqueous meters flow. I obelisk, riding the bridge and I fall horse. I end Rest. scultura in silicone, legno laccato bianco, ferro. /silicone sculpture, white laquered wood, iron. 185 x 77 x 31 cm 2015 #santissimi #épave #sculpture #scultura #contemporarysculpture #contemporaryart #artcollector #artecontemporanea #lampedusa #italianartists #gagliardiedomke #2015

If art is supposed to provoke new feelings and ideas, these are definitely a success! You might not want to have one in your own living room, but Renzetti and Serra's bodies are simply fascinating to look at.
