An exhibition in Prague to commemorate the famous Sardinian artist five years after his death.
The Italian Cultural Institute of Prague pays tribute to artist Pinuccio Sciola with ‘Il mio tempo non ha tempo’ (My Time Has No Time), an exhibition of sound sculptures by the great Sardinian artist who died in 2016, made available by the San Sperate Foundation, which was named after him. The exhibition, set up in the the Institute’s Baroque chapel, designed by the architect Pierandrea Angius, opened to the public on 8 September and will be open to visitors until 8 October.
An internationally acclaimed artist with solo exhibitions and works exhibited all over Europe, Pinuccio Sciola is known for his Pietre sonore (Sound Stones), sculptures that, while taking up the forms of prehistoric Sardinian megaliths, speak a modern language, through symmetrical intersections of lines, geometric volumes, abstract forms that play with the relationship between art and nature, form and content, idea and material.
The exhibition is an integral part of the multidisciplinary project ‘Sardegna. L’isola delle meraviglie’ (Sardinia: The Island of Wonders), sponsored by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia, in collaboration with ENIT – the Italian National Tourism Agency, CAMIC – the Italian-Czech Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Progetto Repubblica Ceca magazine, the La Pagina newsletter, the restaurant Ichnusa Botega Bistro and the Sardegna Travel travel agency in Prague.
