About

E.N. quasi-bridge is based on a structure that is physically and conceptually modular. Formally based on the succession and repetition of a simple shape, the work is conceptually a collage of different cultural references. The result has an awkward balance between functionality — with references to civil engineering and industrial design — and aesthetic — with an eye to minimalist constructions. Cascio pushes forward the idea of a nouveau-esprit-nouveau as the exaltation of the dualism between freedom of creativity and its dependency on the past. The installation is structurally reminiscent of a construction in between a bridge, a minimal sculpture, a more figurative idea of scaffolding or an architectural model, while its raw wood alludes indirectly to a more rural environment, connection with the texts of Thoreau and Morris.
