Apart from the overall scenography of the expo halls this year, Studio Verter will also take one of the landmarks under its wings. They will present a reinterpretation of an archetypal column, playing with the sculptural aspects of a seemingly simple shape and material.
Composed of galvanized steel tubes - a simple base often used for traffic signs and scaffolding systems -, their column will transcend the purely utilitarian.The footprint, a parallelogram, also subverts preconceived notions of orthogonality. The concavity of conventional fluting is inverted as the convex tubes reach up to emphasize the verticality of the statue. Horizontal surfaces intersect the lines, defining a precise rythm between four modules.
