AboutNoire Gallery is pleased to announce Algorythm, the latest solo exhibition of Leonardo Mosso, a curious and multifaceted personality, architect, artist, scholar and essayist of transformation processes and languages.
In the 50s he worked with Alvar Aalto becoming an equal collaborator for the works that the Finnish architect designed in Italy. Many of his works are based on personal research conducted since the ‘60s on the design of flexible, versatile structures with infinite possible transformations.
Algorythm presents an elaborate selection of eleven environment-structures consisting of wooden strips held together by elastic joints.The study of shapes and their possible combinations is a theme that the artist has developed over the years and that has characterized many projects. His structures become systems of transformations, modular elements to be composed according to a combinatory logic.
In the exhibition the works invade the gallery environment and the viewer is invited to experience two parallel spaces - the work and the drawing of its shadow on the wall.
