2002 – Giulio Paolini – Paradigma

“Paradigma is a rectangular box of stone slabs in a metal frame, with two equal parts, one on top of the other. The lower part is closed and impenetrable to the eye, opaque and solid; the upper one, on the other hand, looks like it has exploded, spreading fragments everywhere – on the metal frame, which is visible and open to view, and in the room where the sculpture is located. The contrast is very clear-cut – so clear, in fact, that it shows the view that the slabs forming the faces of the lower section are in fact a little set in from the frame, as if they were imploding.”
