This object−relic of the Pieta statue from Michelangelo is a digital sculpture created thanks to a 3D modelling software. The result of the digital sculpture is turned into a 2D file and printed on fabric giving the illusion of a carved model.
The piece represents and mimics the marble legs of the original statue.The object is at the crossroads between funtional object and sculpture. It gives the user the aesthetic experience to sit on an art icon.
‘It is no longer a question of imitation, nor duplication, nor even parody. It is a question of substituting the signs of the real for the real.’ Jean Baudrillard”
