(Art) Basel Diary #8


Six white mattresses filled with swan’s down and suppor ted upright on a sur face of lead with a refrigerating mechanism. The mattresses are bound by metal strips at different heights and each has a discrete stand; the base consists of layers of soft lead arranged in a composition on the floor. The refrigerating mechanism freezes the metal strips binding each mattress so that a layer of frost forms over their surface. – Untitled (1970 -1994) by PIER PAOLO CALZOLARI
