The Italian artist Francesca Pasquali’s fourth exhibition with the gallery. In her wall reliefs and site specific installations, manufactured plastic materials such as straws and neoprene make up intricate sculptural structures, and prompt a dialogue with the region’s unique and nuanced relationship to petrochemicals. Tightly bound or folded together, the often monochrome structures follow rhythmic configurations, recalling coral and microscopic anatomies. “Material Anatomy” presents several works across the artist’s practice, including works from the Frappa series, playfully named after the iconic layered Italian pastry.
