Combining Materials




If from ancient times to the modern era, artists had garnered renown for their technical mastery of one single material, the avant-garde’s rejection of hierarchies opened the gates to the democratization of materials, regardless of the preconceived ideas attributed to their nature. Ever since the forging of this revolutionary shift, the cohesion of different components progressively gained recognition amongst artists. Radical lan- guages were discovered, as the combining of materials that were in apparent contradiction became the core of sculptural practice.

Rosenfeld Porcini’s exhibition Combining Materials features a selection of sculptural works illustrating how the juxtaposition of unlikely materials respond to the formal experiments voiced by a diverse range of contemporary artists.

The show will feature works by six international artists:

Jane Bustin

Alice Cattaneo

Leonardo Drew

Felicity Hammond

Keita Miyazaki

Tulio Pinto
