ABATE ZANETTI – MURANO PRIZE
The work entitled ROYGBIV, takes its title from the first letter of each colour of the rainbow. The sculpture is made up of 7 clear glass bricks, each one contains within a different colour ball, although the ball is perfected round, its seems distorted as the bricks have an irregular shape. The magnified and distorted inserts are a reference of the water of the Lagoon. I also wanted to confuse perception of a heavy industrial element (brick) transcribed here as to something weightless and transparent, the contrast of the two is part of the concept, as is the various symbols relating to numero 7.
