Arcangelo Sassolino

This is a bit old but whatever…Italian artist ARCANGELO SASSOLINO focuses on industrial processes and materials. His objects and installations are destructive intersections between figure, ground, mass and potential energies, SASSOLINO furthers anxieties of weight and measure invoked by artists from the Sixties and Seventies. Through very direct confrontations between audience and object, his projects reveal various states of physical and psychological reaction that stress the vulnerable conditions by which we’re constantly surrounded.

Additionally, I have a good news: Galerie Nicola von Senger is presenting ARCANGELO SASSOLINO’s second solo-exhibition in Zürich until 16 October 2010.

Figurante. 2010. Steel, bone, hydraulic system. 65 x 23 x 71 cm

Figurante (2010)-  one of the work shown at the exhibition- carved from steel is slowly but inexorably biting on a massive bone of a freshly slaughtered ox. It’s a fascinating yet disturbing demonstration that implicates the viewer in the process of machine defeating nature. The violence of the work engages the spectator in an association with art which is not only intellectual but also physical and triggers a sensation of disquietude, even impending menace.

It’s definitively something that I want to experiment; Stay tuned!
