Italian Artist Sells Invisible Sculpture For $18,000 And We Need To Change Careers STAT!

Italian Artist Sells Invisible Sculpture For $18,000 And We Need To Change Careers STAT!


“It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination,” Salvatore Garau said of his sculpture.

Italian artist Salvatore Garau has sold an invisible sculpture for $18,000 USD titled Io Son (I am).  The artist describes the ‘piece’ as not in material form but more like a ‘vacuum.’

The 67 year old says “the vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that ‘nothing’ has a weight. Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.” Much like how we “shape a god we’ve never seen.”

“When I decide to “exhibit” an immaterial sculpture in a given space, that space will concentrate a certain quantity and density of thoughts in a precise point, creating a sculpture that from my title alone will take the most varied forms,” he continued.

This is not Garau’s first invisible work as he recently displayed his sculpture, ‘Buddha in Contemplation’, in the Piazza della Scala in Milan. (See Instagram post below).

Garau says the “sculpture” is intended to be displayed in a 5×5-foot square in a private space free from obstructions where lighting and climate control are not required. He says even if you can’t see it, it does exist. The italian artist says the lucky buyer was issued with a certificate of authentication as proof of the sculpture’s existence. No word yet as to who the purchaser was or where they will display the piece.
