Print absorbed on reinforced concrete.

Dolomiti 1 is part of the project Epoca n. 731, 736 (2015), a series of ten sculptures in cement. The title refers to the homonymous magazine published in Italy between the 1950 and 1997. This body of work combines the printing process with photography and sculpture with the architecture; all central research elements for the artist.

Epoca n. 731, 736 is an archival action: the use of the original images from the magazine give life back to it and fix its contents forever on the cement. Canto explores the printing process and focuses his attention on the act of absorption and transfers the information from one body to another. The result is somewhat of a decoding of the visual information from the original to the copy. The landscapes appear empty and not all colours are transferred; only the structure of the four standard printing colours - the heart of the image – pass through.

The ink read by the cement dust creates a fragile coating, giving the image a dim, transient and sandy aesthetic, one that looks like it could be blown away by a breeze of wind. Read less
