An axis of infinity numbers that crosses Switzerland
It is probably the largest commissioned works of land art in the Canton of Ticino. Certainly the largest Swiss work of art ... habited. It is a work of art by numbers.
We are talking about the performance art "Les deux roses" of the conceptual art project From "0" to infinity story conceived by the Swiss artist Paolo Grassi.
A decidedly imposing piece, from which the veils have been removed in these days in Cadenazzo and which has already aroused a lot of curiosity. All the more so because it overlooks the very busy left bank of the Ticino river, where about 30 thousand vehicles pass by every day.
For those who don't know the work, let's first take a step back, recalling that it is an infinity project started in 2007 and in which art and numbers are combined. Since its origine, it has now counted more than 270 elements, in which techniques, styles and supports have been declined in dozens of different ways.
