Valerio Tedeschi utilizes traditionally the most precious sculptural material marble, not to create a monument, a coherent, intelligible form, but just the contrary, to make an image of the formless. Albeit his foam-like marble configurations might connote the excessiveness of the baroque sculpture, their performative effect is quite the opposite. Insisting on the material palpability rather than the optical delusion, Tedeschi's “white things” do not aim to image an idea of dematerialization, but they make simultaneously visible and palpable the prefiguration of heterology. The haptic dimension of Tedeschi's permanently-metamorphosing white-irradiating things introduces the layers that exist below a certain threshold of perception in the field of the visible.
