The sculptures of Edoardo Tresoldi

Through his extraordinary hand-made metallic wire mesh sculptures, Italian scenographer and sculptor Edoardo Tresoldi captures the connection and dialogue between the human body and space, as well as the fine line between freedom and captivity, and how man influences the environment he lives in.

His recent works and collaborations, often placed in outdoor areas, depict birds suspended in cages, unable to fulfill what is essential to their existence – the act of flying, as a metaphor for captive thoughts. At the same time, we discover faces and human figures contemplating the surroundings, becoming a reflection of the space, struggling with its limits or trying to escape it. The transparency of the material makes the works even more powerful, offering the compelling experience of the moment or a memory.
