For Antonio Rovaldi (Italian\, b. Parma\, 1975\; lives and w orks in Milan)\, frequent long-distance walks and bike rides provide an ope n-air studio for him to contemplate landscape\, space\, and distance. These elements are often key to his drawings\, sculpture\, photography\, perform ance\, and video art. In The Opening Day\, 2009\, a pitcher takes aim at mass-produced ceramics displayed as if they are classical still life s. The artist uses the intangible arc of a fastball to create suspense. Per haps a metaphor is also at play: has moving-image work\, once considered to be outside the realm of fine art\, now shattered this hierarchy?
