Valentina Sciarra. Time Machine, 2021, sculpture of two elements marble, wood, metal, dimension variable
Valentina Sciarra’s project Salt Free Tears, created especially for Structura Gallery, is dedicated to death as an extension of life. Disappointed by its denial, non-acceptance and misunderstanding, the artist tries to restore the relationship between the different elements of the cosmic cycle as it existed in ancient cultures.
Sciarra bases her study on historical references that prove the wisdom regarding the perception of death. The constructed belief systems and rituals support the process of deep and peaceful insight into the meaning of existence on earth and the journey of the soul beyond the limits of the corporeal.
The two part sculpture Time Machine is showing the continuous cycle between life and death.
