Arcangelo Sassolino

- Selected Works
- Biography

Arcangelo Sassolino was born in 1967 in Vicenza, the city where he lives and works. His works and his installations explore mechanical behaviour, materials and the physical properties of forces. His works call for careful planning and in-depth research insofar as they revolve around a high degree of physicality and on forces applied by or on an object. The tension, the expectation and the awareness of risk – along with the powerful aesthetics of the works – play a key role in the experience of the visitor.

Arcangelo Sassolino has staged solo shows in institutions such as the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis (2016); the Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt (2016); the MACRO, Rome (2011); the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2008); the Z33 House for contemporary art, Hasselt (2010); the Art and the City, Zürich (2012). Furthermore, his works have been displayed in various international galleries and museums: 104, Paris; MART, Rovereto; Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice; FRAC, Reims; Autocenter and Mica Moca, Berlin; Museum Tinguely, Basel; Swiss Institute, New York; CCC Strozzina, Florence; Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice; Kunsthalle, Göppingen; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milan.
