Curated by Giuseppe Pizzuto
Critical essay by Anya Baglioni
Wunderkammern is glad to present the first Italian solo show by the artist Franco Fasoli JAZ Memoria Y Recuerdo in the Milanese gallery.
Franco Fasoli (Buenos Aires 1981), AKA JAZ, is an Argentinian artist, among the first ones to make a change from Writing to Street Art. After his studies in ceramics, painting and drawing at the IUNA (Instituto University Naciónal de Art), he focuses on Scenography at the institute of Theater Colón. He begins to paint at the end of the nineties in the streets of his city, Buenos Aires and with the passing of the years his works are exhibited in numerous countries worldwide, as he participates to international festivals and constantly works towards the realization of mural interventions. The use of different artistic means creates dynamism within his works, where themes such as identity, the human condition, conflict and duality revolve.
Wunderkammern presents Franco Fasoli’s solo show, Memoria Y Recuerdo, for the first time in Italy at the gallery in Milan. On this occasion the artist has decided to reflect on the monumental heritage legacy of his city, Buenos Aires. Therefore he has personally reproduced a monument of the Argentinian history with which he travels from Spain, France to finally install in Italy. During the trip the artist performs the memory of its roots. This performance will become a remembrance when the artist will share his photographs with the public. This installation will be present in his first solo show in Italy alongside with medium and large format collages, as well as with small-format ceramic sculptures.
