The piece donated to the Hospice is a study for a great work: more precisely, a monumental video installation, from the summer of 2012, for the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. For some time now, this place has hosted events featuring monumental works of contemporary art that converse with the marvellous architecture of Ancient Greece. Here Plessi gives us a stone monolith within which we imagine a virtual image. As the artist himself writes about the project, it is “Not Plessi but Plessi’s archetypes” that seek that “Soul of the material” often present in the artist’s research, a soul that leads him to interact profoundly with monuments, architecture, and great artists of the past, in a witness’s ideal transition between history and contemporaneity.
