Art Installation by Edoardo Tresoldi Rules At Coachella 2018

This year’s Coachella festival was marked due to large-scale modern sculptures and art installations across the California desert site. Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi, known for his wire mesh sculptures, has revealed his biggest artwork for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
Named “Etherea,” this artwork installation represents three transparent structures taking inspiration from Neoclassical and Baroque architecture.

The Italian artist has been recognized for wire mesh sculptures, having been selected by Forbes as one of the 30 most influential European artists. The contemporary sculpture embodies the artist’s study into architecture as a vehicle for contemplation, a “dedicated space where the sky and clouds are narrated through the language of classical architecture.”

The transparent wire mesh of Etherea is made of three structures, measuring 36, 54, and 72 feet in height, expressing a meaningful change in scale from Tresoldi’s works. The structure’s clearness let the California landscape to enter the space.

“The installation plays ironically on the dualism between the pure and the filtered experiences that intertwine with one another, to eventually leave the man at the center of it all. With the passage from a macro-reality to a restricted one, the human body becomes a key to read, discover, measure and experience reality, just like architecture itself. An analogy between man, architecture and their surroundings is ultimately established.”

Etherea forms an attached public space within the temporary city created for Coachella. The scheme seeks to embody the spirit of the festival itself, an artwork designed to express the ephemeral nature of clouds, and the power of the natural background.
