Studio Nucleo, a collective of artists and designers directed by Piergiorgio Robino based in Torino, Italy, partners with Gabrielle Ammann Gallery to bring this collection titled “Future Archaeology. In this collection each of the pieces are referred to as “Wood Fossils”. The fossilization process evolving, dissolving, leaving an object half fossil half materialized.
A game of presence and absence, of lightness and weight, challenging the law of gravity.
Their body of work has its roots in contemporary art, design and architectural fields.
The pieces in the Wood Fossil collection introduce a new chapter of unique projects inspired by the destruction of matter as a result of time passing by.
