In the works of Emanuele Marcuccio, forms are constantly questioned, renegotiated. Making use of both minimal metal artefacts, readymades and photography, the artist develops a strategy whereby associations take the form of allegories. In his serial works to date, surface and depth, information and voids, authenticity and artifice, the legit and the fake, that is classic dualisms and cherished ideals generally, get diluted and mixed up not to the point of conceptually rather exhausted synthesis or crash, but as tentative environments that play style and idea off against one another. Emanuele Marcuccio is an Italian artist living in Milan, Italy.
A soft comet-shaped sculpture sometimes falls on a table, sometimes it ends up in a box, in the case of Comet Nera and Cometa Blu, the star, as it falls, remains attached to a well-painted metal plate hanging on a wall. Imprisoned by a mysterious force, it twists, showing a new unexpected shape.
