ARCANGELO SASSOLINO
1967, Vicenza (Italy)
BIOGRAPHY
Arcangelo Sassolino was born in Vicenza, Italy in 1967, where he lives and works.
“Creating, I ask myself: why not try and strain the materials to the limit of their resistan-
ce? Why not force to the limit the characteristics of the matter, causing the unexpected to
emerge from it as form and as sound?” In his talk, Sassolino explains that what he likes is to
take a material ‘by the neck’ and torture it in order to make it scream and admit the truth,
stressing the limits of the materials resistance and contemplating the risk of their collapse.
The tension and the expectation that come with the awareness of this risk play a huge role
in the viewers experience, together with a strong unique aesthetic. Sassolino’s works and
installations explore mechanical behaviors, materials and physical properties of force. Each
work takes careful planning and research and results in constructions that are stunning both
in terms of their sheer physicality (material density, mechanical precision) and the forces
(gravity, pressure, friction) which are applied by or to the object.
He had solo presentations in museums such as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the MACRO Museum in
Rome (2011), with a special mention to the enviromental project presented in Z33 Center for
Contemporary Art in Hasselt (2010), and in the context of Art and The City in Zurich (2012).
Sassolino’s works were shown also in public institutions and collections such as the MART
Museum in Rovereto and the Guggenheim Collection in Venice, FRAC Museum Regional of Reims, Autocenter and Mica Moca in Berlin, Tinguely Museum Basel, CCC Strozzina in Florence, Fondazione
Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice, Kunsthalle in Goppingen, Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro in Milano.
