Car DRDE Gallery, Bologna

Eocene is a project focused on a series of sculptures connected by the fusion of materials of mineral origin. The artist observes with a phenomenological gaze the continuous tension and processes inherent in space and matter to explicit them in artworks that experiment interactions between natural and artificial elements crossing physical, alchemical and conceptual changes of state.
Eocene, the geological era in which main mountain ranges arose and the first modern mammals appeared, is the mythical time of a sculpture that exists prior to man and grows from the mysterious vitality of the subsoil.
Scodro conceives a setting-incubator that combines primordial suggestions and contemporary residues as a new dawn of creation. This primordial and apocalyptic landscape brings together the oxidized and crystallized evidences of the seasons, a spinning top shape with a water motion source, lairs made by a blind mole-architect and a precious hybrid fossil created by the union of an ear of grain and a fish bone.
