Installation view, I BOUGHT A HYACINTH FLOWER WITH LOTS OF LEAVES, JUST TO MAKE ME FEEL LIKE SPRING, Karma International, 2014, Zurich,CH

Emanuele Marcuccio was born in Veneto to a family of Apulian landowners, giving life to an accent that preserves the worst aspects of both inflections. The industrial traditions of the north-east accustomed him – from an early age – to the prospect of an entrepreneurial life, but it was the circumstances of life that led him to deal with art. In an attempt to remedy the nostalgia of a more productive world, his art often relies on local iron and steel industries, with which he shares the same formal priorities: desire for efficiency and hard work. The war to the formal approximation is the aspect that most characterizes Marcuccio's practice, despite that, the human tragedy of production as a perpetration transpires in each of his piece making it profoundly human. (Daniele Milvio)
