Mario Consiglio (IT) 'LAST PRIMITIVES'
May 5 – July 15 2018
Curated by Luca Rezzolla
'LAST PRIMITIVES‘ presents Mario Consiglio for the first time in Amsterdam at Breed art Studios in the evocative brutalist setting of Plan van Gool, created in 1968 by architect Frans van Gool and part of the 100 young monuments of Amsterdam.
The body of artworks consists of 13 ‘ Shields of Peace ’(specifically made for Breed Art Studios) and the sound and visual installation ‘No Borders’, freshly presented in #Perugia (in this new version appears also the unreleased video faith). The scene will be well patrolled by ‘A dog inside’
#Tribal#shapes and bright Lycra colors will recall different cultures, connecting them with an imaginary #line that starts from native Americans and runs through northern Europe up to Africa and beyond.
Ironic and powerful in his postpunk messages shouted by letters and loud techno #colors Mario Consiglio talks about humanism, as a form of ‘primitive purity’ and sees the necessary #interaction of animals and cells as a symbol of symbiotic and supportive #cooperation that is becoming extinct.
Approach the dog, it will not bite you… go closer… a city will appear, a microcosm inserted in nature where contemporary architectures become molecular constructions, sometimes recreating the internal organs of the animal itself.
We Are the last #Primitive#people ! .
No more camouflaging, we are so excited to show you what we’ve been up to the past couple of weeks. ⚡︎
◊ Completely inspired by natures own unique design.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind and hand made, there’s no other like it ♾ #consciousnessontherocks#fromthehearttotheheart photo by Mark Bridger @gettyimages
