Matteo Allodi

Festival: 2015

My work attempts to effect a ruin through responding to architectural rejuvenation, through exploring the materiality and the processes of past architecture and artwork, to create a relic to the decay of post-modernist architecture. The slip forming process I have used in my work is based on early building processes which have been used to create gigantic concrete structures. Concretes synonymy with brutalism and its cold, ugly and bold characteristics were implemented within my work in an attempt to pictorialize a state of ruin and failed utopian architecture.
