Mazzoleni Torino is pleased to announce Gli occhi della Scultura (The Eyes of Sculpture), Salvatore Astore’s first solo show with the gallery, opening on Tuesday 12 April 2022.
Astore’s exhibition follows the path initiated by Anatomia Umana (Human Anatomy), the monumental site-specific stainless steel sculptural group that last November was donated by Mazzoleni to the city of Turin.
Astore’s works speak broadly and deeply of humankind and its relationship with the world. His “presences” are latent forms within our genetic memory that naturally “sprout” and evolve in the mind. The artist’s forty-year-long research has led to a language that is structured and formal, yet always evolving.
This exhibition will showcase new sculptures, which have been created specifically for the show, along with a curated selection of works from the 1980s until today. Astore’s organic minimalism is perceivable through his drawings and sculptures in bronze – a material used by the artist for the first time – and steel.
