Using sound poetry as the connecting element to the sculptures, the artist let body speak through the expansive use of sound and conveys the fluidity of gender as a constantly changing, multivocal denotation. In this way, audio component becomes the sculpture's own space-sound existence as a poet-artist herself.
“Sculpture Factory” of Quayola was inspired by the ‘non-finito’ technique of Michelangelo. This same concept of an unfinished oeuvre will be reflected by artists through sound, sculptures, poetry of Michelangelo and light art during the performance “Pietra Grezza” forging a dialogue with sculptures by Quayola in the exhibition space.
Although Michelangelo’s poetry is not nearly as well known to the public as his sculpture, painting and architecture, it was an important facet of his creative life. For the “Pietra Grezza” artists choose poems what are centered around a few of the most prevalent and intriguing themes in Michelangelo’s repertoire: time, death, and the immortalizing power of art; the artist’s concetto (conception or idea) and the perfection of its realization; the reflection of the artist’s self in his creations; the tension between hiding and revealing, which relates to the subtractive process of marble sculpture; and a yearning for spiritual release, or elevation, from the human condition.
