K466 Allegro assai – ANTONIO AMBROSINO – curated by MASSIMO BIGNARDI – 2018, October 10th/November 16th

Opening on Wednesday, October 10th, starting at 6pm. Catalog in the gallery. The event adheres to the Fourteenth Day of Contemporary Art promoted by AMACI.

The exhibition is divided into three moments, or better, in three movements, in resonance with the structure of the concert n. 20 by Mozart which gives the title to the exhibition.

The first space in the gallery houses the Kronos 2018 installation, consisting of an intervention on the wall and about sixty sculptures that run along the floor. The sculptures belong to the “fragments of time” series (performed from 2003 to today) and are made of terracotta, majolica and cold enamelled terracotta.

The second room is entirely dedicated to the series “nosce te ipsum”, works of 2018 made of acrylic, sand, earth and resin on Amalfi paper.

The exhibition closes in a deep and velvety blue, with works of the cycle “blue moments” realized starting in 2017: these are small and large sculptures made of EPS and synthetic resins with flocked finish.

Curated by Massimo Bignardi, the show was presented during 2017 at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Cologne, Germany and 2018 at the FraC Contemporary Art Museum in Baronissi (SA), italy.

Since 2011 he lives and works in Serdes, small village near San Vito di Cadore in the north of Italy.
