Mobile (Rome), 2020
Davide Stucchi is the latest artist to enter the RETROFUTURE section, the collection of works by young Italian artists growing organically with time.
Hanging from two light bulbs on the ceiling, the two imperceptible interventions by Davide Stucchi, titled Mobile (Rome) (2020), are composed of iron coat hangers bent by the artist that hide amongst the various presences in the room, taking on different poses, moved by the air shifted by the passage of others.
DAVIDE STUCCHI (Vimercate, 1988) lives in Milan. Working mainly in sculpture, his works involve minimal interventions and subtle manipulations of existing materials to investigate the body, its social functions and representations, confronting external realities such as fashion, advertising and the domestic environment. He has presented solo exhibitions at Martina Simeti (2021); Deborah Shamoni Gallery in Munich (2020); Gregor Staiger, Zurich (2019); Sundogs Paris, Paris (2019); Zazà, Naples (2019), amongst others. His works are currently on view at the 2020 Art Quadriennale 2020, Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome, and have been featured in group exhibitions at Stadtgalerie Bern, Switzerland (2020); Centrale Fies, Dro (2019); Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2018).
