With the carotaggi (core drilling) di Venezia, extracted from 2014 from the subsoil of the lagoon, several layers of material were found, including caranto, a compact over-consolidated clay, which constitutes what supports the foundations of the city of Venice. In these works we find various themes addressed by Calò: the representation of time, the mutability of matter and a reflection on the Venice lagoon, whose elements subtracted from the landscape and reworked by the artist become objects carrying universal meanings.
In questi lavori si ritrovano diverse tematiche affrontate da Giorgio Andreotta Calò nella sua ricerca: la rappresentazione del tempo, la mutevolezza della materia ed una riflessione sulla laguna di Venezia, i cui elementi sottratti dal paesaggio e rielaborati dall’artista diventano oggetti portatori di significati universali.
