Via Santa Marta, 18
Founded in 2014 by Alessandra Covini and Tomas Dirrix, Studio Ossidiana presents
Petrified Carpets, an installation of architectonical elements in concrete inspired by the oriental garden, as recurring pattern in the iconography of the ancient Persian carpet.
By studying the meaning of these elements and by experimenting different working techniques, the initial decorative patterns are turned into material objects through which concrete is transformed and reconsidered, thanks to the use and the combination of materials such as marble and colored pigments. The four elements build up an installation that goes beyond the garden and the carpet and becomes a new material
landscape, in a space suspended between heaven and earth.
Petrified Carpets is an installation co-produced by the 5VIE district and curated by studio PS with the sponsorship of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Milan.
