Mostro – Marsèlleria
Pino Pipoli “shows up” in Milan. Marsèlleria permanent exhibition hosts Mostro a solo show for which the artist chose to offer over 30 years of activity, meanwhile fleeing the idea of a retrospective. It is rather the self-portrait of an artist who observes us and inevitably mutates us, constantly.
On display on two floors of Marsèlleria, are works created specifically for the occasion and for the location, together with a series of recent and less recent works which travel through key topics and figures of the artist’s research and which fill up a “marvel chamber” in becoming, in reverse through the past. Painting, installation, video, sound, performance, merge into an intimate environment, where social context and collectivity are explored and spied, maintaining an impalpable balance between stern irony and dramatic visions.
Pino Pipoli was born in Bari, lived for many years in Germany, and now lives and works in Milan. After various collaborations and special projects with Marsèlleria, this is his first solo show for the gallery.
