Art Basel Miami, December 2-7, 2014
A substantial installation assembles in a highly coveted area that acts as a link between Wynwood and the Design District in Miami, Cracking Bridge, designed by the Cracking Art Group, curated by Gloria Porcella, director of Galleria Ca ‘d’Oro (Rome I Miami I New York), and supported by the Tryptic Hes Group. The Cracking Art Group, composed by artists Renzo Nucara, Marco Veronese, Carlo Rizzetti, Alex Angi, Kicco and William Sweetlove, was formed in 1993 and is characterized by a strong social and environmental commitment demonstrated by the use of recyclable plastic materials in their works. During Art Basel Miami 2014 (December 2–7), the installation creates a large theater of participants, including meerkats, crocodiles, frogs, snails, wolves and bears, where the iconic plastic sculptures unite on top of large shipping containers. The significance of this installation is the will to overcome obstacles and difficulties encountered in communication between different cultures. The shipping container, as a transportation vessel bringing commerce worldwide, symbolizes communication by which the colorful plastic animals utilize to share their message of open communication. The Installation is also a tribute to Miami, the gateway to the world, where multiple languages are spoken and every day is an understanding of complementing cultures and integration.
