Elisabetta Benassi: EMPIRE

Elisabetta Benassi: EMPIRE

Details

Elisabetta Benassi's EMPIRE is an installation of terracotta bricks, hand-crafted in the UK from clay ranging in colour from red to black. The bricks are configured as a site-specific installation – the size, shape and appearance of each installation determined by its relationship to the setting; self-supporting structures assembled without mortar and in an intrinsically stable conformation. The work addresses the crux of the relationship between ancient spaces, archaeological heritage and the contemporary museum.

EMPIRE takes the basic building unit, the Roman brick, and transforms it with new symbolic and aesthetic meaning.

The work is exhibited for the first time in the UK at MOSTYN and at the Italian Institute of Culture before travelling to various venues in Rome.
