Wire mesh church installation
The Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi has used wire mesh to recreate an early Christian church on an archaeological site in Siponto, a port town in southern Italy.
Thanks to the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities (MIBACT) and Archaeology Superintendence of Puglia, Tresoldi was able to reinterpret the spaces once occupied by the ancient early Christian church, creating a light and transparent wire mesh installation in the Archaeological Park of Siponto.
The curator Simone Pallotta said:
"The work of Edoardo Tresoldi appears as a majestic architecture sculpture able to tell the volumes of existing early Christian Church and at the same time able to vivify, updating it, the relationship between the ancient and the contemporary. A work that, breaking up the secular controversy of the arts primacy, summarises two complementary languages into a single, breathtaking scenery."
