Kasper Bosman’s solo show to inaugurate a new exhibition cycle at Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro
On February 17, 2021, Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milan, inaugurates the Project Room, a new exhibition cycle under the supervision of Eva Fabbris as guest curator for the entire 2021 season.
Artist Kasper Bosmans will open the series with the solo show A Perfect Shop-Front.
He conceived the exhibition especially for Project Room #13, designing an intervention to address topical contemporary art issues, such as the breaking apart of natural ecosystems and the limits imposed by the pandemic. Due to the situation, he worked at the exhibition remotely, delegating the material execution of the work to others. This process led him to interrogate himself in his work on the notion of authorship and the role of chance. Issues such as division of roles, the dynamics and the chain of individualities that lead to the work also emerge.
The installation that gives to the exhibition its name, A Perfect Shop-Front (2021), was also created expressively for Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro: inside a sort of display window, the artist sets a series of daily life objects, that he collected personally, recalling the political and cultural history of the United States. Books, pictures, posters, and more, combine public and private dimensions, politics, and micro-histories.
Among the other works on view, there are the wall drawing Vermiculated Rustication (2016) and Wolf Corridors & Stamp Forest (2020), a painted floor crossing the space of the foundation.
The exhibition will be on view until May 14, 2021.
