OPENING: 15 March 2007

From 15 March to 31 May 2007

Biasutti & Biasutti Gallery presents an anthological exhibition dedicated to Aldo Mondino (Turin 1938-2005), curated by Pier Paolo Benedetto. About twenty-five works make up a retrospective that collects an important synthesis of works created between 1962 (the period in which he is Tancredi's assistant) and 2000. A complete vision, between Ittiodromo and The King up to the False Collages, of the career of this artist whose first solo shows date back to the early sixties in Paris. Aldo Mondino begins his very personal artistic adventure as an interpreter of the Conceptual Movement, and then gradually directs his research on a decidedly more pictorial side. From works on hardboard, for example, to his sculptures made with always different materials up to the recovery of painting filtered by a great attraction for the East, Africa, Morocco and India. Mondino's poetic universe is marked by stylistic eclecticism and a great irony that pervades all of his work. The puns between titles and contents are like his famous Dancing Dervishes, presented at the 1993 Biennale of Venice curated by Achille Bonito Oliva, which seem suspended in a surreal space. His work, born in the context of a research linked to European conceptual experimentation, soon rediscovers a very personal relationship with painting. He has exhibited in important galleries and museums in Italy and abroad.
