DIEGO PERRONE: SCULTURA CHE NON SIA CONCHIGLIA NON CANTA
Casey Kaplan is pleased to announce Scultura che non sia conchiglia non canta, an exhibition of new work by Diego Perrone (b. 1970, Asti).
Perrone’s work utilizes a vocabulary of repeated references including ears, horns and bells that result in various shapes and new forms. Despite these reiterations, his works do not coalesce into a singular narrative, but rather emphasize an
internal logic that operates in a poetic, almost mythical manner. Drawing from provincial and traditional histories, as well as the varied landscape of 20th century avant-garde movements (Futurism, Art Nouveau, and Arte Povera) the works are strongly rooted in process. His objects, drawings, and videos reveal themselves through a study of the operational aspects of their own creation, favoring a state of non finito that provides a window into their making and creates a layered sense of time.
