An invisible sculpture by Italian artist Salvatore Garau with no tangible assets fetched 15 euros at an auction on May 18th.
Salvatore Garau made a sculpture with no physical presence. This statue is neither touchable nor has any digital form. It is also impossible to confirm the existence of the work based on the work. However, several documents given to the purchaser can confirm the existence of the work. Garau says the statue “has a new historical value and represents an excellent metaphor for our day.” The work is indeed enough to stone up even the abstract works that have happened so far.
Garau’s work has a certain philosophical background, of course. Besides, without this philosophical logic, there seems to be nothing else. According to Garau, this logic is based on the fact that the void is nothing more than an energetic space. It is argued that what is empty is nothing and that there is a weight of emptiness in the principle of uncertainty. Finally, he concludes, “After all, don’t we all shape a God we’ve never seen?” In the face of this work, which we think may include a satire about art, one can not help but wonder what 15,000 euros were given for.
