Città di Milano, 2019

Città di Milano, 2019 is a new work from the eponymous show CITTÀDIMILANO at HangarBicocca in Milan.

For his first major institutional exhibition in Italy, the artist presented a unique selection of works from the past as well as new productions, conceived as a single landscape that will transform the perception of the environment in relation with the natural light filtering into the exhibition space.

Città di Milano, 2019 is a direct impression on large sheets of photosensitive paper through a pinhole construction in the rooftop space at the Pirelli building in Milan.

The exhibition itself focused on the artist’s sculptural practice, presenting groups of works made from 2008 onwards, the result of a long research study into the materials—for instance, caranto clay, wood, bronze and other natural elements—and the geographical and cultural context in which they are shown and from which they originate.

Giorgio Andreotta Calò’s solo show CITTÀDIMILANO at Hangar Bicocca , Milan (IT) was running from 14 February till 21 July 2019 and was curated by Roberta Tenconi.
