Hardware is changing. Not anymore just a basic place and manual working for “men” as is usually commonly imagined, but a meeting point between art, culture, business and territory. Screws, nuts, bolts, locks and keys, become works of art. Artènsile is a photo contest created in 2012 by Sabrina Canese and supported by the Canese Dante Srl, which brings together the world of hardware with the creative process of contemporary artists. Canese Ferramenta Hardware, located in La Spezia, becomes a promoter of artistic investigation in the ferramenta sector when Sabrina, in Paris, seeing a picture of the us photo artist Berenice Abbott that depict the pipe wrench in a wave-line motion, understands the chance to combine the world of art with his professional business.
