Stair 1550_2010

Palazzo Piazzoni Parravicini, TV

A stone and a string.
A calculation of the amount of stone missing from the stairs of a 16th century palace. The recovery of the same type of rock, sculpted to a weight of 6.5kg.
A string starting from the ground runs up the staircase, climbing and flowing into the exterior hall, where the stone is left to fall to the ground and the string’s tension gives form to the installation.

Rock of Vittorio Veneto, nylon white thread, hooks.
