Magis Me too Birds
Sculpture in metal mesh painted in epoxy resin. Supplied with hook for ceiling suspension.Italian furniture brand Magis presented these hanging sculptures made of wire mesh by sculptor Benedetta Mori Ubaldini at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan in 2012.
Her starting point was the desire and the vision to fill large spaces with a symbolic and poetic narrative of mine.
Clouds and Birds are the result of this vision: sculptures in metal mesh without internal structure, where the play between presence and absence becomes the poetic element of the work.
The metal mesh, which is usually a hidden material used only as internal frame for sculptures, finds in these objects its own beauty and transforms into figures and objects of a poetic world
Made of metal mesh painted in white epoxy resin.

The milanese sculptor Benedetta Mori Ubaldini has been living and working from 1991 in london. In Italy she trained as a picture restorer and conservator, but was not creatively satisfied with it. in 1994 she decided to enroll at the middlesex university of london, obtaining a bachelor in fine arts. ‘what I love is creating three dimensional pictures. my balloon pieces are what I fondly call - ugly art - they deal humourously with sexuality, body issues and everyday life. the pieces I do with chicken wire come from a childlike side of my imagination. the magical power of transparency is capable of giving each piece the lightness of an apparition, a ghostlike quality, like a trance from memory.’
