Specially created for the notte bianca event which took place in Florence on April 30, the Tape Florence is a surprising work of art. Entirely made of technological materials, this futuristic sculpture, which looks like a huge transparent cocoon, is the brainchild of Numen/For use, a group of young artists (i.e. Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovic) who work between Vienna and Zagreb; the installation made up of layers of transparent adhesive tape is on view at the beautiful palazzo Strozzi which, with its Renaissance architecture, seems to underscore the distinctive characteristics of the sculpture. But the big news is that this time visitors can take off their shoes, step inside the installation and become an integral part of it. The enclosed video shows the artists at work.
