Giuseppe Gabellone often associates sculpture with photography creating a relationship of dependence and ambiguity between the two languages.

The first room features a collection of 32 photographs and 14 bas-reliefs in aluminium placed at irregular intervals. The images show a structure composed of three rings surmounted by electric bulbs undergoing alterations of time and nature through a chronological construction and false narrative. The spectator literally turns around the sculpture through the one-to-one point of view of each photograph. The vibrant surface area of the bas-reliefs takes place in the continuity of this movement, making them a part of the narration itself. Finally, two ‘marines’ seem to condense and freeze the time that has passed.

In the second room, four screen prints on paper reveal images on glass placed on the ground on bricks: a reversed portrait, a flower, smoke and a drawing of a braided line. Their ghostly and fleeting presences are merged with their own shadow and are layered on the other on the surface of the ground.

In the last room, two bronze bas-reliefs preserve the imprint of the different materials and elements that punctuate their texture like those in aluminium.
