Art and access in unison
02 September 2013
There were more than 400 visitors to a temporary exhibition by the renowned sculptor Ivo Soldini at Swis access equipment rental company Camillo Vismara’s warehouse in Lugano.
The company’s equipment was used to erect and take part in the exhibition. One of the machines used was a Pagliero tracked platform (pictured).
Since 1973, the artist, based in Milan, Italy has shown at a large number of solo and group exhibitions in Switzerland and other countries, including Brazil, the United States and Italy. Since 1975, he has mainly devoted his efforts to small and medium-sized sculptures, explained Camillo Vismara. He mostly works with bronze, but he also uses aluminium and gypsum.
For this one evening in early March, Camillo Vismara's business premises were transformed into an artistic spectacle, thanks to Mr Soldini’s magnificent sculptures and the striking effects created by lights and music.
The towering bronze works were manoeuvred by the rental company’s powered access equipment, “creating a unique, highly original atmosphere that surprised even the many members of the trade in attendance,” said a company spokesman.
