MARCELLO MALOBERTI

Born in 1966 in Codogno, Italy. Lives and works in Milan, Italy.

Kubec, 2017

The artist has conceived specifically for the exhibition AQUA, the installation Kubec, composed of 25 military helmets, placed on the ground, open towards the sky to collect the rainwater which will fall during the exhibition. The artist reinvents the function of these military assets by transforming them from an element of conflict and devastation to vessels of collecting water, a vital element, and a rebirth metaphor. With the passage of time, the helmets will be filled, purified and liberated from their association with death, becoming symbols of life.

Kubec, 2017

L'artiste conçoit, expressément pour l'exposition AQUA, l'installation Kubec, composée de 25 casques militaires, posés sur le sol, l'intérieur tourné vers le ciel, pour recueillir l'eau de pluie qui tombera durant toute l’exposition. L'artiste réinvente la fonction de ces actifs militaires en les transformant de complément de dévastation et de conflit, en collecteurs d'eau, élément vital, et métaphore de renaissance. Au fil du temps, les casques seront remplis, purifiés et libérés de leur symbolisme de mort pour acquérir celui de la vie.
