An ethereal creation of wire mesh in Singapore

GENESIS OF ARTWORK
DZ Engineering, a company of the Dino Zoli Group of Forlì managed by Monica Zoli, will once again star in Singapore, for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Apart from the development of the lighting and track communications systems on the Marina Bay circuit, DZ Engineering will also install artistic lighting on some historic buildings in Singapore, promoting, together with the Dino Zoli Foundation, a spectacular installation by Edoardo Tresoldi, one of the most influential young artists in Europe (according to “Forbes”, 2017).
Edoardo Tresoldi’s research is characterised by the use of metal mesh. Contrary to conventional architecture, which encloses the space creating a landscape modified by man, his minimal structure embraces the context and welcomes the human presence giving rise to an unprecedented experiential reality. An ethereal dimension in constant dialogue with the landscape, considered a contamination of cultural, social and identity-producing languages, the dynamics of which become part of the artwork.
From 13 to 16 September 2018 at the headquarters of Cargo 39 (39 Keppel Road #03-03, Tanjong Pagar Distripark), the artist will present “Cube Temple. An ethereal creation of wire mesh in Singapore“, curated by Nadia Stefanel. A dynamic and iridescent space, in which you can experience an ethereal dimension, while the light – designed by the engineers of DZ Engineering – favours an interpretation of the work subject to different moods.
“We met Eduardo,” explains Roberto Grilli, General Manager of DZ Engineering, “in 2016, illuminating his first masterpiece: the early Christian Basilica of Siponto. We are proud to bring this Italian excellence to Singapore, with an installation of great artistic and cultural importance.”
“Since meeting Edoardo Tresoldi and his extraordinary work in Siponto,” says Monica Zoli, Sole Director of DZ Engineering, “I have dreamt about creating a joint project. Now we will do two: after the experience in Singapore, a unique city and a strategic location for DZ Engineering’s business, we will also host Tresoldi in Italy, within the Dino Zoli Foundation, with an exhibition that will represent the story of the work of this incredible artist for the first time.”
The exhibition, organised in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Singapore, ICCS and the Emilia-Romagna Region, will be open to the public from 10 am to 10 pm. Free entry.
