Human Wall (2012)
The project series documents "Human Wall", an installation by Pettena presented at the Galleria Federico Luger in Milan, in 2012. The installation consists of a large rectangular surface handmade with clay and covered in imprints of hands and fingers. "A wall that is described as "human," certainly not just because it is made by man, but rather because the latter's intervention find expression in the choice of a natural material and in the sign that he leaves on its surface with his fingers."  Other editions of this installation were also presented at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in Salt Lake City, in 2012, and the exhibition "Architetture Naturali/Gianni Pettena" at the Kunst Meran/Merano Arte in Meran, in 2017.
The project series contains design studies for the texturing of the wall, photographs of the installation, a video of the montage of the installation in Milan in 2011.
