Nonni, which is Italian for grandparents, is a piece carved in real time conversation about the importance of language, the loss of language, elder-hood and the heartbreaking absence of it in our culture.
William Versace’s latest body of work “Kinship” is a sculpture series challenging notions of the lone artist, all being carved by hand in the presence of kindred.
Says William of his work, “The pieces are mnemonic objects with rich conversations encoded into the lines and curves, acting as a physical memory shaped from immaterial dialogue. The sculptures, therefore, could perhaps be seen as not fully my own, but a collaborative ode to my tightly woven web of relations, bringing light to how they shape me, how they shape my purpose and how without them, I do not exist.”
