Toast Project Space is a place to reflect upon different contemporary styles and practices, a place to exchange experiences, and fills the gap that exists between the public and the works of art, through a constant regeneration of the dialectical exchange between artist, critic and public. Taking place in the ex- porter’s lodge at Manifattura Tabacchi in Florence, the project was born of an idea of the artist Stefano Giuri, in collaboration with art-critic Sergio Risaliti. The project was developed during the course of the Artistic Residencies programme promoted by Manifattura Tabacchi.

Artist:

The main feature of the exhibition is the Wayfarer, two identical statues within a galvanic plexiglass tank, faithful reproductions of one of the ex-votos of Clermont-Ferrand, a cloaked human figure catalogued in the museum as a Wayfarer. The two sculptures are made from fused zinc, the metal having been created from the fusion of some twenty-two thousand coins that had been thrown into the Trevi Fountain.

The sculptures are completely immersed in liquid, one in front of the other, and attached to two brass bars that sit across the tank. The sculptures are forced into a perpetual exchange of matter, every three days the polarity of the galvanic tank is inverted so that one sculpture loses matter to the other. Then, over the following three days the sculpture that had received matter slowly gives it back, continuing in this way ad infinitum.
