DAVIDE STUCCHI‘s arrangements of sculptures and objects at Deborah Schamoni in München are revealing despite their minimal and meticulous aesthetic, uncertain foundations of identity and unstable authenticities.

At the core of the exhibition stands a group of objects situated somewhere between sculpture, boutique decor, or set design. They evoke nightstand tables, armoires, and partial walls, and seem to explore the closet and its surrounding space. Nothing adorns these black wood structures; no backdrop, nor garments are exposed into them. They appear rigid and austere.

Yet the installation includes a number of objects such as items of clothing, which seem to refer to the human figure, although not really. The uncertainty comes from the absurd size of these garments: a pair of oversized jeans as well as three miniature ones are displayed in the staircase area of the gallery.

STUCCHI‘s works refuse transparent signification nor to anchor precise moods and feelings. Instead, the relationship between these works seems to explore the boundaries and restrictive parameters of the object in relation to the body and, hence, the spectactor.

DAVIDE STUCCHI‘s exhibition is on view at Deborah Schamoni, München until July 8, 2017
