Giuseppe Rivadossi (Nave, 8 July 1935)
Arca del Sogno (Ark of the dream), year 2003
in cherry wood
Dimensions: 32 x 79 x 29 cm
Considered one of the most iconic objects created by the Maestro, the Ark of the Dream presented here stands out for its considerable size, the three opening doors and the perfect state of conservation.
Inheriting his interest in art from his father Clemente, Rivadossi officially began his artistic career in the sixties, approaching the study of furniture and sculpture in wood, plaster, terracotta and bronze.
There are therefore many materials used in his creations, always inspired by man, his values and "living by him.
Giuseppe Rivadossi says:
I have seen wood work since I was a child.
Up until the 1960s”, where I now live, the relationship between man and nature was still based on ancient ethics.
Then came industry and with it began looting.
The hope of a less harsh life soon turned into a bitter realization.
New technology that was supposed to be just a more perfected tool turned out to be a tool of general frustration and disruption.
In this situation I feel more and more deeply the need to express that sense of basic unity of existence, as a basic idea not to be lost or to be rediscovered at all costs every day and in everything.
Now these images, these sculptures and these pieces of furniture are born from the depths of my experience like a song, of that hope and that only alternative that stands before us rather than nostalgia for the past.
The work, like all our other objects, will be sold accompanied by certificates of authenticity and lawful origin.
