Mazzoleni presents Equilibrium. An idea for Italian sculpture, a group show curated by Giorgio Verzotti. The exhibition will tour from Mazzoleni’s Turin gallery to open in London to the public on 8 February 2019.
Equilibrium. An idea for Italian sculpture investigates overcoming the notion of ‘tutto tondo’, or “in the round”, and examines the artists’ different research where each arrives at their own unique interpretation of equilibrium.
While following different paths, each artist arrives at a condition of balance between the elements that physically make up the work: in this way, the fragility that is frequently a common denominator of these strands of research, finds a strength capable of conferring stability. Along with works by a number of recognised masters of Italian art, the exhibition will feature more recent works, in many cases created specifically for this project, by some of the leading artists who have renewed the paradigms of contemporary Italian sculpture. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in English and Italian, including an essay by Giorgio Verzotti.
