The work of Davide D’Elia is characterised by the contamination of languages, from photography to video, arriving at complex mixed media installations. In AOBOI, a buoy is placed in the void, together with the abstract representation of its float line - a formalisation of the principle of Archimedes, according to which any object, wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. The work refers to the sense of the limit between water and air, but also to a concrete experience, that of a man who sees a buoy as the limit to be reached, but not surpassed. AOBOI leads us toward the comprehension of D’Elia’s work, which focuses attention on the relationships of strength that govern the world around us..
