Frosso Michalea, Terpsis (1999)

Share Article

The artwork «Terpsis» was added to the Foundation’s collection in 1999

“Terpsis” (1990) is an early example of the sculptural practice Michalea began to develop in the 1990s. Maintaining a special interest in morphology and abstract forms, the artist turns to more dynamic forms, with metal as a main material, while placing emphasis on the relationship of the geometric form to the space. This piece creates a sense of movement which alludes to the diversity of nature, while the incorporation of letters into the basic form of the composition provides a verbal character to it, urging the viewer to attempt to read the letters which form the title of the piece, which successfully describes one of its purposes: the pleasure of the senses.

The work has been moved for restoration purposes.
