Description

“The Heart of the Earth (B-C Version)” are two twin sculptures, which only differentiate themselves from one another by their topmost part. “The Heart of the Earth”, whether “B Version” (with the sphere in gilded steel) or “C Version” (with the resin pyramid), are sculptures of contemporary art that connect to a previous work of art in wood and acrylic made by the same artist between 2012 and 2015, precisely entitled “The Heart of the Earth (A Version)”. Besides, the two sculptures draw inspiration from the same concept of strength and energy that releases the Earth and were made of Carrara marble powder and white cement.

 

Cultural Background

In fact, to give even greater emphasis to the energy aspect, the artist wanted to combine the remains of a meteorite in the mixture. The origin of the latter and the historical dating of the body from thousands of light years are controversial: the only certain data is that they are fragments belonging to the meteorite cataloged by the official bodies and by NASA as “Meteorite Gibeon”, fallen in prehistoric times in the southern region of Namibia (Africa) and some pieces of which are exhibited in the most famous geology museums in the world.

Finally, in one of thoses sculptures, Cesare Catania wanted to concentrate all the strength of the elements considered to be of greater energetic impact: the inverted pyramide and the sphere, the marble dust coming from the Earth and the meteorite fragments coming from the Universe.
