Sculptures work with all sorts of different materials, and Edoardo Tresoldi found a way to create transcending and whimsical pieces with an unusual medium—wire mash. His near-transparent sculptures have to be seen to be believed and he’s creating them with a goal to “transcend the time-space dimension”.
Tresoldi started his artistic journey as a painter, but his interest switched to scenography, sculpture, and cinema during his art studies in Rome. He started performing his public space interventions in 2013 and has since staged them in many public parks, festivals, and exhibitions.
The Italian sculptor worked with many industrial materials before discovering his affinity for wire mash while building set designs. Its transparency allows him to create an immersive experience for visitors by forming a direct link between the sculpture and the environment, and that’s why wire mash remains his favorite material.
“Its lightness and the capability to tell the absence of matter, the immaterial side of things. I see in wire mesh poetics the depiction of a mental projection or, when related to history, the representation of what used to exist but is no longer there,” Tresoldi told Design Boom.
