Interest in a development of form and matter in space – clearly identifiable in the Enlightenment series – Morucchio continues through the first test of environmental intervention Percer-Voir

It seems to be the “environmental” evolution of the first sculptural attempts combined with an intensified search for a vaster sensorial and perceptive space that is always more interactive with the observer.

The repeated choice of glass, characterizing this phase of the artist’s production, is determined by the specific properties of the material: transparency and the effects of dematerialization and dynamization caused by reflections.

In fact, the title Percer-Voir, playing on the terms perceive, pierce, and see, reintroduces the linguistic, aesthetic, and ethical need to open up new possibilities of perception, of understanding, and of discerning beyond visual, sensorial or intellectual habits.

Thus, an investigation that tends to cross the most diverse forms of appearance or habit continues. Placing a series of crystal glass spikes on the mirrored surface of a water edge, the artist uses natural reflections of light – and of water – on the vitreous matter in order to generate new contexts of experience, developing the emotional and perceptive qualities of the substance, “opening” the observer’s field of vision to another experience of the space.
