Edoardo Tresoldi creates “public space interventions” by building with mesh, in metal. Tresoldi also makes birds and people with mesh but we, at Mimi Berlin, prefer these huge and useless buildings. Up to today the largest house Edoardo built was for the 2018 Coachella Musics and Arts Festival in California, it’s named ‘Etherea’.
‘Etherea’ and ‘Sacral’ by Eduardo Tresoldi. ‘Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home’ by Do Ho Suh.
These works remind us of Do-Ho Suh’s sculptures, which are made in fabric but are equally transparent. Also, both artsists explore how to create houses and interiors. It would be nice to see their work in one place, don’t you think?
“Edoardo Tresoldi plays with the transparency of mesh and with industrial materials to transcend the time-space dimension and narrate a dialogue between Art and World, a visual summary which reveals itself in the fade-out of physical limitations. Mixing classical and modern language, he generates a third one, strongly contemporary.” (read more/img via edoardotresoldi.com)
