Description

Sergio Sardelli salvages discarded metal pieces and compresses, cuts and reshapes them. His Twomblyian scribbles, close to any automatic writing, give us an obvious reminder of Chinese Ming porcelain and Delft porcelain. What an antagonism between the indestructibility of metal and the fragility of porcelain, united in a sculpture. By putting a varnish on his blue felt pen drawings, Sardelli deliberately provokes the happy accident by breaking down the blue colour into its initial tones (here pink) or by cracking the paint layers. Birds, plants and other dragons seem to appear...
