Aiko Miyawaki
1996 - stainless steel

The Japanese artist wanted a large open field where she could further her investigation of linear forms in space through a series titled Utsurohi, which in Japanese is the name of a particular kind of wind. At Celle, she chose a hill overlooking the park. On the lower slopes grapes and olives are cultivated, while the top of the hill hosts a clearing that offers a panoramic view of the plain below, from Pistoia to Florence (one can even see Brunelleschi's dome clearly on the horizon). Miyawaki drove several stainless steel bases into the ground; from these depart thin fluctuating cables that draw sweeping lines in space. Lines traced in this way recall the path of circling winds or the flight of birds. The wires create designs within space that respect the landscape with their absolute transparency.
