Nature | Michele De Lucchi, L’anello mancante

“A missing link is the element that connects distant parts of a broken, open chain. We need them often these days. More and more links are needed to connect the multiple ramifications of social, political, economic, cultural and even moral relationships. But we also need links that can physically connect, in real life, the ideas of fullness and emptiness, of closed space and open space, of container and content.” The above is how Michele De Lucchi introduced the design theme of his site-specific installation for this edition.

Engineered and fabricated entirely by UniFor, L’Anello mancante is an installation consisting of a metal construction covered with a shell of rectangular shingles in HI-MACS® solid surface material.

 

L’Anello mancante is inserted into the dim light of the exhibition space like a Gothic cathedral rising magnificently up from the fabric of a medieval village. Evoking a tall and slender work of architecture, a sort of tunnel with a parabolic section, it curves around the room occupying nearly all of its floor space and volume. In plan the construction represents an enclosed pathway through an open link, to be entered from one side and exited from the other.

“The ogival section of the wall creates the effect of an enclave, like a basin turned upside down that inevitably impels you to look up. The form projects your thoughts upwards, towards infinity.”
