Alda Marina Iacoianni’s relationship with marble dates back to her attendance at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts, where the artist was able to better understand this material and later decided to investigate the field of performance and collaboration with other artists.

Interested in investigating and questioning the qualities of marble, Alda Marina Iacoianni designed a work linked to the concept of the suspension of “time”; a bubble in the act of exploding that emerges from the block, like a movement generated by a force internal to the matter itself.

The artist thus dissolves the rigidity of the material in a liquid form, a metaphor for an energy capable of transforming and renewing itself, inspired by Leonardo’s studies on waves.
