EventSilvana Editoriale presents: Arcangelo Sassolino

Silvana Editoriale presents: Arcangelo Sassolino


Published on the occasion of Arcangelo Sassolino’s solo show Il vuoto senza misura (Atipografia Associazione Culturale, Arzignano, Vicenza), this book is the first monograph on the artist and is a first attempt to examine his entire research by providing a chronology raisonné of his most important works over two decades of activity.

Sassolino adopts “conflict” as the core concept of his art. Contrasting industrial materials, mechanical or thermodynamic machinery capable of destroying them or of modifying their status,

and ideas related to limit, tension, unpredictability, fragility, danger, failure, and mortality are key to all of his works.  Sassolino sees the sculpture as an unplanned, independent action, one entirely freed from the artist’s choices: the focus shifts to the process that generates it, corresponding to a conflict between different materials, emotions, forces, and enthropy cycles.

Speakers: ILARIA BERNARDI (editor of the book “Arcangelo Sassolino”) and ARCANGELO SASSOLINO (artist)

Language: Italian
