2003 - metal: bronze, steel
Morante’s sculptures often deal with solitary figures, rendered in a classical style but placed in unconventional compositions and seemingly engaged in defining moments. 'Relative', a title that indicates multiple meanings, is made of two identical male figures cast from the same mold and mounted horizontally on opposite sides of a steel post. The ground plane is flipped on its side and the contemplative figures do not mirror each other, posing questions about perspective, both literal and philosophical.
