Prato (IT), 1970
Rudy Pulcinelli’s works focus on the idea of dialogue and individual as a unit of measure of the potential value of mankind: in the contemporary babel of people and ethnic groups dramatically consumed by internal struggles, where human lives are often not taken into consideration, by using the symbolism and the letters of the 7 most widespread alphabets in the world, the artist tries to connect the concept of communication with the one of memory which together play an important role in laying the foundations for his sculptural-installation language.
