Sol Lewitt
2000 - aluminium

As founder of the American Minimal Art movement, Sol LeWitt was the first to develop a theory based on the use of simplified forms that have the ability to generate almost infinite possibilities. After having created a work for the "Primary Structures" exhibition, made of wood and painted black, the artist went on to create works in white aluminum. The new material made the surface "hard and industrial," while the white deprived the piece of any expressiveness. Self-supported and placed directly on the ground, the sculpture 1-2-3-2-1, shown in front of Casapeppe, is a fine example of the experiments in modularity that LeWitt was conducting in the 1970s in both indoor and outdoor spaces. It is an ideal complement to his structure already present in the Celle park, Cube Without a Cube (1986-88).
