PRONO GIGANTINO

High density EPS, resin, Vero Metal coat.

The Prono Gigantino was first exhibited in 2018 in CONTEXTO, the contemporary art event that invades the city of Edolo (BS), Italy.
The sculpture was placed in the main square of the town.

Under the artistic direction of Casa Testori, curated by Davide Dall’Ombra,
the exhibition questions the GENERATIONS, intended as a place of witness passages, of cultural heritage that are handed down, but also as acts that give life to something new, beautiful and useful for everyone.
The heart of the city opens on the ground floor of one of the most beautiful
buildings in Edolo, between the Via and the Corte Mottinelli. 12 artists
of three generations, with painting, drawing, video art, sculpture and installation,
provide an insight into current artistic production. But there are plenty of surprises for three special projects (At the Liberty building near the train station, at the Library, ex Casa del Fascio and at the old prisons), to finish with two environmental works: near the Town Hall and the Church.

The EPS/resin sculpture is a 1:1 model for a bronze sculpture made upon request.

Alessandro Pongan

I am developing an art concept called TOTEM PROJECT. It is about resilience, spirituality and human condition; I want to use my work to contaminate urban environments as well as natural places revitalizing them with the simple, potent, language of my characters. My research,develops through the creation of totemic figures, ex voto, athars, sometimes exorcisms. I use a short circuit between modern and ancient techniques, spanning between a micro scale to gigantism. I employ different materials such as bronze, iron, sand, volcanic rock, ceramics, paper, plaster, wood, nylon, inflatable PVC, video projections.

BRAIN DRAIN
The Brain Drain is part of my EX VOTO cycle. They are votive figures echoing those that can be seen in the ancient baroque churches placed by the faithful as a sign of gratitude for the grace received. Hanging sculpture and video projection. The projection is a CT SCAN of the brain sculpture and is a journey through its mysteries. A becoming of cryptic ancestral forms that follow one another in a continuous generative morphing. In fact, one day I wondered what mysteries the three-dimensional form I had created could contain; this sort of surgical exploration resulted in surprising images. It is as if these figures were already present but invisible in empty space; the act of modeling the sculpture captured them and made them visible. A trap for the unconscious?

PRONO GIGANTINO BALOSSA
WINNER OF PARCO BALOSSA ART PRIZE 2018, curated by Casa Testori for Parco Nord Milano. Permanent installation september the 15th 2018, the sculpture is part of an art itinerary in the public park. The Parco della Balossait is a public park obtained from an area that has strenuously resisted the attack of building speculation in the northern suburbs of Milan now part od Parco Nord Milano. The work consists of a structure of recycled Innocenti tubes, a symbol of building construction, and the planting of climbing plants. The nature that resists and takes back its spaces. The creepers are Parthenocissus quinquefolia, chosen for their color mutation accompanying the succession of the seasons. The sculpture is an elaboration of my Prono archetype which here becomes a small gentle giant. His position evokes the first movements of a child, like a new awareness of humanity in relation to the environment. The sculpture has immediately become a landmark of the territory and the final stage of a path of urban art trekking. When a work of art generates a place! The last time I visited the little giant, as soon as I approached, a group of birds took flight from it. This work is now part of the European Sculpture Path of ART MOVES EUROPE.

EX VOTO - Brain Drain
EX VOTO is a cycle of works in progress. They are votive figures that somehow echo those that can be seen in the ancient baroque churches placed by the faithful as a sign of gratitude for the grace received. The installation is composed by a body, which quotes Auguste Rodin's "Le Penseur", a chromed brain on the verge of soaring and a video projection representing a journey inside the brain itself. The work is a votive sculpture about the genius and imagination.

EX VOTO - YES MAN
EX VOTO is a cycle of works in progress. They are votive figures that somehow echo those that can be seen in the ancient baroque churches placed by the faithful as a sign of gratitude for the grace received. This votive sculpture is against the yes men not rarely it is an amulet against the yes men that unfortunately we often have to bear.

PRONO - Despite Everything
Despite Everything is an experimental piece made with concretized sand. The sculpture can virtually be produced in large scale. My archetype Prono is shown here like a mountain carved out of deep canyons and eroded by time. My intention was to bring back the essence of our self after the passage of life events.

HUMAN FABRIC
The title of this work is a paraphrase of "urban fabric". The graphic composition depicts a bird's eye view of a multitude of shapes that intersect as in a plot of buildings. I made this work by reflecting on the human condition and on the network of relationships. The potential for strength that arises from union and cooperation, like in a herd of animals, a flock of birds. It seems to me that it is a very topical issue nowadays if we consider the condition of isolation we had to live in the historical period of the pandemic when we found ourselves forcibly isolated, locked up in our homes, leaving the streets empty. Variable dimensions. Digital print on canvas.
