|Dancers’ graceful bodies inspired not one or two artists and photographers. The charm of Swiss Ugo Rondinone (born 1963) is in the simplicity of his shapes, cast in wax in the natural sizes of bodies and in the natural colours of the substance. They are delicate and elegant, attractive in their simplicity, yet stylish and impressive. Like his predecessor, Alberto Giacometti, Rondinone praises the ascetic body that is athletic, resilient, and tough at the same time. Unlike Edgar Degas’ ballet-dancers, his sculptures are of resting dancers. The tired bodies sculptured by him, however, are remarkably graceful and harmonious.
Seven nude figures by Ugo Rondinone will be exhibited at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens by mid-September as well as a silent face (photo # 5) without hands, as if it would like to tell us that time is powerless to genuine beauty.
