Italian Sonnet (2008) by Maciek Jozefowicz
“Italian Sonnet is a small sculpture, small enough to be held in the palm of the hand, with big ideas. Italian Sonnet represents the precarious binding of opposites: the eternal (rocks) with the temporal (wood, twine), nature (rocks) with culture (dowel, twine and the act of manipulation of these materials), male with female, light with dark.”
