SPAZIO AMATO is the large neon light installation conceived by the artist Massimo Uberti for Hypermaremma 2020. It should be read as a tribute to the exceptional landscape of Maremma.
The artwork, hosted on the land of Terre di Sacra in the naturalistic oasis of Lago di Burano, managed by WWF, is based on the idea to create a dialogue with the surrounding landscape, becoming a kind of “caption” able to ofer to the viewer a way to reflect on the unique character of the territory and on the need to protect it and preserve it through the years.
Massimo Uberti’s research has always focused on the expressive articulation of the paradigm of light as a possible and revealed space. On this occasion too, he uses the luminous source of neon as a semantic trace to redesign the landscape that hosts the intervention. Fully grasping the objectives of Hypermaremma, with this large site-specific installation, the artist presents an intervention as an emblem of the work of art in dialogue with the place and the surrounding landscape, emphasising a solitary fruition capable of summarising the exceptionality of time.
SPAZIO AMATO transposes the present into memory through an evanescent and poetic apparition that bursts for a brief moment into the immutable territory of Maremma.Press release
