Conversation Piece #1

Matteo Cremonesi

Opening May 26, h. 18.30 -21.30
Open by appointment only

Matteo Cremonesi’s practice starts from observation and the obsessive, accurate study of everyday objects, usually technological devices. Using the camera he examines and decomposes those objects as a doctor on the operating table. After the operation takes place, we can still identify those objects and their function but we eventually find ourselves in an unexpected world.
Moving closer, the lens collects that thin layer of air that lies between the surface of the object and the lens itself, and immediately what was once a printer, a ceramic vase, a mirror, a curtain, is now something new, fascinating, unexplored.
Matteo Cremonesi looks at these design objects and industrial materials as a sculptor does by falling in love with shapes and their plasticity and can do nothing but record them, take a picture of them and, in an act of gratitude, show them to us through his eyes.

The work that Matteo proposed for Conversation Piece consists of several elements in which we find all the themes that are dear to him. In the first place, photography, but a kind of photography that approaches sculpture; in fact, the titles of his photographic series contain the word “Scultpure”, as a prefix, followed by the name of the photographed object, stating that what we are looking at is a sculpture, no longer an ordinary object. Matteo’s work has an exploratory attitude: often leaving the studio, he makes long wanderings in the city of Milan at night and brings home some of the objects he finds around. Some other times he makes videos that insist on the sculptural quality of the object portrayed. This is the case of the film on display “Mono”, which, sounded by Flavio Scutti, visually explores a copy machine and returns its sculptural nature back to us.
Matteo will also present a sculpture lying on the ground and composed by his notebooks, which the viewer can observe or, once we overcome the fear, take in our hands and browse.
