I Battuti Bianchi  1991
2nd-hand white clothing, cane, aluminum, rope, 15’ diameter
“An English Summer,” Carignano, Italy

In the Carignano basilica built in the 1600s by the Savoy family for a powerful religious sect, I Battuti Bianchi, a large cane framework resembling a hot air balloon supports a sewn skin of white second-hand clothing.  This work approaches ideas of ascendance; the human desire to reach the heavens through both scientific and spiritual means.
