Cultural concrete

  • • Vero mixes her inventiveness with new technologies
  • • Her works seek to mirror the nature that surrounds us
  • • She is inspired by the macrocosm and microcosm

There are times when craftsmanship unfolds through non-conventional materials, which are not tied to a time-honoured tradition. This is the case with Vero Reato, who specialises in the use of Ultra High Performance Fiber Concrete, a fibre-reinforced cementitious material with increased durability, tensile ductility and toughness normally used in road and building constructions. “I have always been interested in concrete,” she explains, and I always liked to work on different aspects of creation: design of objects, sculptures, videos, computer generated images, illustrations, paintings, restoration of frescos. “She explores mineral matter and develops sensitive and offbeat works, where the mineral and organic worlds fuse into multiple cells to obtain what she calls “Concrete Culture”.

ARAPEDA

This sculptural wall piece, made from Ultra High Performance Fiber Concrete. The material’s flexibility, its mechanical performances, and its infinite possibilities of inclusions allowed her to update a singular, original, liberated creativity, for the realization of wall installations and sculptures.

GAMMA

Through her sculptural pieces, made from Ultra High Performance Fiber and natural materials such as bamboo and wood, Vero Reato strives to reveal past imprints. She seeks to magnify the hidden features of mineralogy, telling the story of a living being or to underline the power of an imperceptible environment.
