Benedetta Mori Ubaldini

Benedetta Mori Ubaldini
Before moving to Milan in 2005 Benedetta Mori Ubaldini lived and was trained in London. Benedetta works in many materials but is best known for her innovative and extraordinarily beautiful wire work. Each piece starts life as industrially produced, rolled “chicken” wire which is gradually shaped by hand, twisting and joining the pieces together to give a seamless appearance.

“What I love is to to fill large spaces with narratives, creating three dimensional pictures and I like them to be evocative, symbolic and poetic. The sculptures I create in chicken wire have no internal structure at all, therefore the play between presence and absence becomes the magical element of the work and gives each piece the lightness of an apparition, a ghost-like quality like a trace from memory or images from a dream.”
