GABRIELE DAL DOSSO - CUBO DI GABO
Gabriele "Gabo" Dal Dosso applies the meditative practice to art, in a plastic research headed to the transformation of a philosophical idea in a tangible object. Thus was born the CUBI DI GABO series.
The artist, at the origin of his reflection, takes the cue from the Möbius strip structure. In Cubo di Gabo are the dichotomies in/out, open/closed, finite/infinite to fall apart, losing their known connotations and boundaries. Cubo di Gabo is a geometric alchemy, a particular case of squaring the circle, long time sought, projecting who manipulates the object in a different dimension, allowing him/her to explore new glimpses of thought otherwise inaccessible.
Cubo di Gabo is an instrument allowing to meditate at physical scales different from the ones we’re used to in our everyday life, near-infinite scales, where transformation is the cypher, and where quantum properties arise at a perceivable level.
This way are born the Philosophical Objects, plastic geometrical analysis, dynamic sculptures where to get lost and find oneself again, as in the universe sketched by Gabo's pen, composed by black and whites, with hints of red, representing the night, the day, the life.
Each Cubo di Gabo is a geometric translation of the famous verses from William Blake's Auguries of Innocence.
"To see a world in a grain of sand
and a heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour."
