Active since the late 1960s, Remo Salvadori adopted a different approach from
his contemporaries from the very outset. The key elements are the materials, carefully chosen and worked by hand into simple forms that appear indebted to the
geometry of Piero della Francesca, and the dimension of time, as suggested by the invitation to engage in unhurried meditation on the work.
In the Moment is one of the sixteen square elements of the installation first shown in
Milan in 1978, which presents a reflection on the relationship between the visible
and the invisible, between created form and inner life. It is a thin surface of tin
marked with solids and voids in accordance with precise numerical ratios that
the artist-alchemist describes a vehicles of dynamic energy that manifests itself “in
the moment”. (Transl. by Paul Metcalfe per Scriptum, Roma)
