Mazzoleni London presents the exhibition AGOSTINO BONALUMI. Shaped Metal, in collaboration with Archivio Bonalumi.
This project inaugurates Mazzoleni’s new gallery space in 15 Old Bond Street as well as a series of shows titled “Focus on”, a format delving into a range of key aspects of the European post-war period.
The title Shaped Metal refers to the metal sheets series that Bonalumi created in the late 1980s using a “pleating” process with an enamel coating. These wall-mounted works represent the highest point of Bonalumi’s prolific career. Characterised by strictly rectilinear rhythmic structures, they are representative of the artist’s explorations of materials and their expressive potential.
