Stucchi’s research is devoted to the exploration of the artwork ‘materiality’ along an interest in the strategies of vision which allows to subvert its object hood. Stucchi defines himself as a “sculptor” even if a large part of his practice unfolds as minimal interventions: engraving leather with fire; shaping in forms spaghetti pasta; accumulating dust, etc. All these interventions, in one way or another, avoid any possibility of conveying the work through traditional channels as for example the photographic documentation of it. Stucchi’s practice never stops to surprise thanks to the use self-referentiality and secret meanings, blurring the lines between viewer, work, meaning and the various contexts of reference in which enacts. In 2011 he co-founded in Milan the exhibition space Gasconade with Michele D’ Aurizio and Luca Castiglioni. In 2015 he co-founded outside Milan the project Full-Fall with Mattia Ruffolo.
