The project is realized as a series of small bronze and gold sculptures. Presented as ancient and precious archaeological finds and composed as individual objects or as still life, Magnana faithfully reproduces small apples or bunches of grapes, collected in nature, completely emptied from their pulp by bees, wasps and hornets. The work of the insects takes on an expressive and sculptural dimension and at the same time symbolic as it happened on fruits, Piedmontese native quality, cultivated without pesticides by the artist. The malformed and skeletal fruits are thus transformed into rare and precious objects, such as the ancient qualities and the biological culture from which they derive.
