LIGHT ON: “Into the Light” by Cascione & Lusciov
The fundamental idea of the series “Into the Light” (2016) by Cascione & Lusciov is the relationship which exists between space and time in relation to the futuristic dimension. The sculptures represent the formal translation of the two components, which evolve and transform with time.
Cascione & Lusciov translated the immateriality of space and time into the pure and abstract form, which transmits the sensation of projection forward towards an unknown and abstract future, to the edge of the universe.
The futuristic forms evolve in one direction, which represents the space coordinate and following the curved axis representing the time coordinate. Reflecting and irradiating the surrounding light, they give the impression that, from one moment to another, they could transform in the flash of glaring light ready for the journey towards hyperspace.
The metal gives materiality to the forms, but at the same time fluidifies the geometries and confers with ambiguous solidity halfway between the solid and liquid state. The sculpture series gains biomorphic characteristics through deformations and elongations, following a sort of natural metamorphosis.
Cascione & Lusciov (Silvia Cascione and Roman Lusciov) are multidisciplinary designers, who translate their artistic work using different techniques belonging to the world of sculpture, design and goldsmith’s art. Currently they live and work in Milan, Italy.
From 2014 Cascione & Lusciov started to experiment with different modalities and combined their different creative expertises and techniques to reach a common language, which finds its natural declination in the works of Contemporary Art.
