Marco Poma – the salt exhibition

Marco Poma – the salt exhibition

In this part of Italy there is a phrase that if somebody is not all that quick then they are missing their salt. It is used as an indicator of ones intelligence (or lack of it) It is also used to define money (salary etc)

Common salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite. Salt is present in vast quantities in seawater, where it is the main mineral constituent; the open ocean […]

Marco Poma – “Ciocchi d’oro – Omaggio ai castagni secolari”

Marco Poma – “Ciocchi d’oro – Omaggio ai castagni secolari”

Instead of consigning the wood to the fire, he has preserved and given us time to stop and look again at these centuries old trees which have defined in so many different ways the culture and lifestyle of this area.

Once again Marco Poma puts some of his work in front of the audience and makes them think slightly deeper about objects and things around them which over time have slipped into the background. He brings them “front of stage” and into the spotlight. What could be even thought of as banal or mundane becomes […]
