See all dates for Massimo Bartolini
Massimo Bartolini (born 1962, Cecina, Italy) makes immersive, experiential, spatial work. Rather than put work in a space, he tends to make work out of the space itself, modifying it, sometimes subtly, sometimes with maximum impact, to produce sculpture which is activated (sometimes literally, always conceptually) as the viewer occupies it.
This exhibition, one of two complementary and overlapping exhibitions of Bartolini’s work (the second is at S.M.A.K, Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent in April 2013), though relatively small in scale and of necessity not representative of every aspect of Bartolini’s work, admits us to the core of his practice, showing one recent large-scale work in the context of a selection of small objects from the artist’s studio, exhibited here for the first time.
