Description

Simone Zaccagni (Pescara, 1982) lives and works in Milan.

The entry of bronze into Simone Zaccagnini's sculptural practice started from his residency at La Fonderia Battaglia in Milan.

This new series of sculptures challenges this ancient and prestigious material associated with classical sculpture and tries to give it back a sense of roughness.

The artist wants to move the wild line of drawing to another dimension, embodying the of the freedom of gesture.

The drawings thus became objects that exist in their own time and space. Those bronzes are free-standing or self-supporting drawings. Simone Zaccagnini pays also particular attention to the patina of the sculptures. Quoting Arturo Martini, “patina is the gossip of sculpture” and is a crucial moment in its formation and changes its appearance.

“The same shape acquires a very different allure, one moves on a razor’s edge, trying not to impose a forced look on the sculpture. It’s a volatile proximity”.
