LIMES, the last work by Edoardo Tresoldi in Barcelona

Limes Edoardo Tresoldi | Collater.al

Every time Edoardo Tresoldi presents a new work we are always fascinated, every time we believe that he has reached the maximum result then he overcomes with another installation in an iron wire.
This time Edoardo tried his hand at creating LIMES, a site-specific installation designed for the 25th anniversary of L’Illa Diagonal, in the shopping center overlooking the Avinguda Diagonal, the 11-kilometer-long Barcelona street that cuts the city in two.

Above the roof of the building, 56 meters high, above the city, stands the 5.5-meter high wire work composed of six volumes from which six faces face each other in different directions as if they wanted to keep an eye on the city.

The transparencies and ephemeral side of LIMES, which plays on the concept of absent material, creates a strong contrast with the monumental style of the building designed by the Pritzker Raphael Mondo and Manuel de Solo-Morales Prize. It is a work to be looked at from below, from the street, using the shades of the sky as a background, from which the metallic faces of Tresoldi stand out.

LIMES will remain on the roof of L’olla Diagonal until 26 January 2019, and will then be set up again inside the shopping center.

“Limes is a reflection on the public space meant as a theater of human interactions: a place in which the spatial perceptions are punctuated by fleeting encounters that generate subjective experiences and memories. The Absent Matter is represented here as the immaterial architecture born from similar dynamics: an ethereal space rhythmated by constantly different chemical and empathic interactions.” – Edoardo Tresoldi
