Carlo Borer - Clouds
Carlo Borer develops his objects in a virtual space using a CAD programme and complex processes in Virtual Reality and using high tech tools such as lazers and yet the sculptures finally emerge in the real world with the use of demanding craftwork.
The "Noreadymades" or the Spaceships are created in a quite different way whereby Carlo Borer is led by found objects which he sets in new contexts, the objects suggest an assumed use, pretending to be basic commodities in a high-tec civilisation and lead the viewer on a false trail. Apparently a Ready-made in reality however built as a pure invention, but in reverse. From 1981, Carlo Borer worked as a visual artist and denied exhibitions in Europe and the USA.
