May 2016, Exhibition by Antonio Pio Saracino: ‘Digital Cities’ and ‘Life’

An exhibition of tapestry by Rubelli and drawings by Antonio Pio Saracino for ‘LIFE’ a new monument at New York -Presbyterian Hospital.   Exhibition on view on May 19th on the 7th Floor at MAD.   Private reception to follow.

Italian Architect and Artist, Antonio Pio Saracino presents his latest work for an extended celebration of New York Design Week at the Museum of Arts and Design. He presents on May 19, ‘DIGITAL CITIES’, two light tapestries conceived with overlapping maps of major world cities.  The hanging tapestries are woven with fiber optics and silk threads. The Tapestries are crafted in Italy by the Venetian company Rubelli.

 Saracino also presents drawings for a new Monument ‘LIFE’,  a public art project, commissioned for the historic entrance to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on East 68th street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. “Life” consists of two sculptures, each composed of a series of mirror polished, stainless steel rings with varying heights and radii assembled on top of each other and shifted from their vertical axis to create two dynamic, iconic figures. Saracino states: “The ‘Life’ sculptures are visually unstable at the same time that they maintain an internal stability. Life is fragile and vulnerable yet life is strong and resilient.  Life is about finding that unique balance between inner and outer forces that unfold during our existence.”
