For the fourth edition of Ecole del Rusco: the exhibition about art and recycling in Bologna, was set up an artistic and sensory journey through the squares of the city, with five installations by young designers, dedicated to the touch, sight, taste, hearing and smell.
The temporary art installation “Circolare” is a project of landscape using products made with recycled materials compared with the same materials in their original form.
The dialectical opposition between the waste raw material in its original form and the object made from it has the dual function of showing concrete results from a recovery action and to stimulate the tactile curiosity of the public who can verify personally the effect of such recovery.
The containers that collect the protagonists of this dialogue are big spheres that symbolically through their shape indicate the circular process of the recycling act.
The building of the new municipality stands in the middle of a neighborhood like a giant steel and glass come from somewhere.The building does not belong to the landscape as well as the large spheres which appear to be rained down from another world.
Behind them, on the lawn, the trail underscores the imaginary landing of these rolling meteorites. Three are transparent, covered with thin pencil-written, three black, made of a thick rubber like that of car tires. Latter contain the raw materials they are made of objects contained in the transparent spheres.
