Where and when
The artist in conversation with David Palterer and Marco Tonelli.
In collaboration with the exhibition Materia Prima of Montelupo Fiorentino, will introduce Valentina Gensini.
Present in the Museo Novecento with the installation Two in One, Marco Bagnoli since the seventies has developed an artistic practice that is divided between different materials and media, such as painting, sculpture, drawing and installation. His works start from deep mathematical, spiritual and philosophical knowledge ranging from the West to the East and lead him to seek a possible synthesis between aesthetic data, scientific enunciation and spiritual tension. The basic paradox from which he moves and aims his research consists in finding, through pseudo-scientific demonstrations, the great themes of the revealed philosophies, especially those of the East.
The artist, in conversation with David Palterer and Marco Tonelli, will retrace his work starting from the works made in ceramics.
