Bitossi Ceramiche and Alessio Sarri present a metaphorical ceramic installation dedicated to the sea where, on the surface of the water, birds migrate to new and luminous shores.
Whether speaking about the movement of a single person or a group, as individuals or a flock, movement caused by nature or social factors, the decision to leave a place to reach another always has more than one reason, generating a complex and controversial phenomenon.
Pottery is a beautiful metaphor: it is only dust. Dust with endless possibilities.
- Alessio Sarri
The possibility to be reinvented is the way of man when creating a new habitat capable of welcome. Aldo Londi, artistic director of Bitossi Ceramiche for over four decades, creates a expressive language made up of matter and form painted in an unmistakable color: blue. Here he presents the “Birds” series, in creation since 1955.
I have traveled the world and in all the countries where I’ve been I made ceramics. I have never broken the relationship with this material which has to deeply marked my life. Sometimes I research with instruments, sometimes with new materials.
- Aldo Londi, Bitossi Ceramiche, 1996
