Level 0, a networking format that sees collaboration between the ArtVerona fair and Centro Pecci, presents Luogo, a project by Fabrizio Prevedello especially conceived for the museum’s spaces.

The sculptural research of Prevedello, who lives and works on the slopes of the Apuan Alps, is marked by its mix of industrial materials—reinforced concrete, iron beams, glass sheets—and the canonic elements of sculpture, among which the extensive use of marble stands out. This complexity within the work enables the artist to uncover an evocative dimension attributable to both the materials used and how they have been transformed.

For the exhibition at Centro Pecci the artist has created a narrative route where the sculptures are placed in relation to one another, amplifying the meaning within each of them. They are recent works accorded additional value due to their unusual location and the dialogue the artist intentionally sought to create between one work and another. The title of the exhibition, which, as is often the case, alludes to the artist’s practice, refers to a suspended and evanescent space-time dimension, and to the multiple meanings attributable to the idea of place, including urban space, natural landscape, material dimension, ideal or historical.

The sculptures presented at Centro Pecci are plastic shapes relating to the sculptural tradition, which with their geometry and colours echo architecture and its structural elements and are charged with opposites—solids and voids in the forms, the weight and lightness of the materials, the fact that they are both transitory and durable at the same time—thereby offering the viewer a layering of signs made up of metaphorical images capable of generating a multitude of possible narratives.
