Transparent 3D sculpture by Benedetta Mori Ubaldini
London based artist Benedetta Mori Ubaldini is from Milan, Italy. She studied to be a picture restorer and conservator in Italy. In 1994, she decided to enroll at the Middlesex University of London. Benedetta loves creating three dimensional sculptures of chicken wire, which come from a childlike side of her imagination. The magical power of transparency is capable of giving each piece the lightness of an apparition, a ghostlike quality, like a trance from memory. She skillfully builds her transparent sculptures of animals with balloon and wire.
“What I love is to to fill large spaces with narratives, creating three dimensional pictures and I like them to be evocative, symbolic and poetic. The sculptures I create in chicken wire have no internal structure at all, therefore the play between presence and absence becomes the magical element of the work and gives each piece the lightness of an apparition, a ghost-like quality like a trace from memory or images from a dream.”
