Antupada — The Bee dreams up the Flower and the Flower dreams up the Bee

In Rumantsch, 'Antupada' means to meet someone, both on appointment and by chance; and the realization of this work actually generated real encounters, bringing together professionals with different know-hows in order to overcome the numerous technical difficulties. As for the subtitle, it is inspired by writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley's quote evoking the essential interdependence tying up the different elements of the natural world. The artist has materialized this idea of mutual dependence by moulding the wax into a circular cameo where six bees melt together drawing a flower. Like often in his works, Mirko has chosen the circle as a symbol of life and harmonious connection.
