Another important motif in HUMANITY is the idea of close association and community through everyday means. Marco Nereo Rotelli’s sculpture “Together” is a descriptor made tactile, reminding us of the human need for social interaction. In fact, the theme of this year's Venice Architecture Biennale, where Marco's sculpture will be presented, is "How Will We Live Together". This appears to be a ubiquitous theme in our global society.
Rotelli’s “Together” presents the beauty of togetherness shaped by human hands. It’s not only proof of human accomplishment, but it offers a potential conundrum: what would it look like if there were no “togetherness”? Would art such as this still be possible? Furthermore, is the impact delivered through the shape of the word, or does the meaning shine through the interpretation of the word itself?
