Beautiful hollow sculptures made with chicken wire

Milan-based artistBenedetta Mori Ubaldini crafts these extraordinary wire sculptures out of industrial chicken wire by hand, meticulously twisting the pieces together. ‘The sculptures I create in chicken wire have no internal structure at all, therefore the play between presence and absence becomes the magical element of the work and gives each piece the lightness of an apparition, a ghost-like quality like a trace from memory or images from a dream.’ They look like they belong and don’t belong against their decidedly more solid backdrops.
