Normally, we think of marble as a metamorphic rock that embodies the platonic idea of sculpture; the beginning and the end. But what if one tried to investigate its limitations and manufacturing process for just a moment? What would we get if we treated it like an extrusion material, almost as if it were aluminium, copper, etc?
That’s just what Niko Koronis did, defying the production and materiality of marble. Living matter that becomes a vehicle, “Bruchi” is the result of a total aesthetic subtraction – no superfluous decorations, an archaic shape for an abstract light.
Materials: Green Imperiale marble, Red Levanto marble, White Arabescato marble and Black Marquinia marble
