Arcangelo Sassolino: Matter revealed

Repetto Gallery

27 Sep 201728 Oct 2017

The contemporary Italian artist works through the experimentation on materials and mechanics, on precariousness and the contrast between strength and resistance.  “Matter Revealed” is Arcangelo’s first solo show to be held in the UK.
The exhibition gathers together  five works by Sassolino taken from just as many series of works: “Analisi”, “Igor”, “Mai più come prima” and two “Untitled”.

“With the manipulation of a certain kind of industrial technology, of its brutally functional and aesthetic realism, I try to give a tangible edge to a sensation of strenuous terminality. I attempt to propagate a psycho-physically vulnerable impact,” states Arcangelo Sassolino. “By applying to materials that which physics defines as natural phenomena such as pressure, speed and gravity etc., I feel I can give new potential to sculpture.”
