The photographic work “Chair” and “X” - CNC bed with wood dust - that Angelo Madonna is presenting in this exhibition, is a documentation of the manufacture of a chair and a small stool. The photographs were taken as soon as the machine stopped and components were removed from the bed. The artist managed to document the complex texture of the materials that lay on top the bed surface. What he captures with the camera is what is left behind on the sacrificial bed of the machine, a material that lasts for a very short time before the artist wipe the bed entirely clean again. “Chair” and “X” remarks a vital phase in the development of the artist work that at this point in time has transcended the boundaries of the process of making an object and start to explore a new territory. Metaphorically, those dunes of dust sitting on the bed of the CNC machine seem to recall scenes from the desert, traces of the hot wind of such landscapes or images taken from the surface of the moon, its craters with their remarkable emerging shapes.
