In Il panorama verso oltremare intorno dove le stelle si avvicinano di una spanna in più Anselmo explores the possibilities of «humanizing making the vertiginous distance» that separates us from the stars and our positioning within the universe. The viewer is invited to walk around and within the installation to discover its panorama. Concerned with the fallibility of measurement, each granite block presented is one hand span high – an ancient way measuring without apparatus using only ones hand.The arrangement of the concrete forms in the centre of the gallery space allows for a visual experience of a landscape observed from multiple bird-eye perspectives.
