A new modern art installation arrived in the country of design, Italy. From February 22 through July 19, 2020, Palazzo Strozzi in Florence hosts a major art exhibition devoted to tomás Saraceno, whose multi-disciplinary practice encompasses art, social and life sciences. This exhibition greets visitors with a site-specific art installation in the institution’s courtyard comprised of large, reflective spheres.
The contemporary art piece embodies Saraceno’s interest in challenging our approach to environmental issues by envisioning a future free from borders and fossil fuels — ideals propelled by the interdisciplinary artistic community initiated by the artist titled, ‘aerocene‘.
The art sculpture builds on Saraceno’s research into solar balloons capable of floating using only the heat of the sun and encourages visitors to rethink the way we inhabit our planet in a poetic way through this art exhibition.
The art exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi offers visitors an opportunity to experience Saraceno’s vision of the world and its possibilities. Responding to the historic architecture of the site, the artist seeks to create a dialogue between the renaissance and the contemporary design and art world.
