The collection is expressed in a series of flat ceramic slabs with complex backgrounds, with dense pigmentations and accumulations, powdered colours and chalky materials, resembling the “stripping” method of fresco creation. In Archeologie, numerous images are overlapped like slides projected one on top of the other, generating an accelerated journey through time, in which the rubbing-away or crumbling of parts of the image are commonplace. In the tactile density thus created, the viewer can read an infinite number of stories, combined and stratified on a single substrate.
Thanks to modern production technologies, these stories transform the walls covered with the ceramic slabs into works of art, reactivating the constructive dialogue between creative imagination and production expertise that has made the history of the CEDIT brand a shining example of the partnership between designers of genius and sophisticated technological processes, giving outcomes with outstanding aesthetic and formal impact. The work of art can be placed at the service of decoration, allowing the construction of genuine, large-sized pictorial design schemes: the ceramic-covered walls are clad with the artist’s poetics, a coloured garment that will survive over time to become a memory.
