Francesca Pasquali_Metamorphoses, the first of a series of solo exhibitions taking place in the summer months, introducing emerging Italian artists to the London art scene.

About

The exhibition will display Francesca Pasquali's latest works including two large-scale installations especially realised for Tornabuoni Art London. A keen observer of the materiality and transience of objects, Francesca Pasquali is influenced by the heritage of the Arte Povera movement to repurpose mundane objects such as drinking straws and elastic bands, cobweb dusters and broom bristles. Her labour intensive creative process confers on these humble materials a new value and a second life as artworks, providing new ways of experiencing familiar objects. Starting with a basic structure – a net, a metal cage or a plank of wood – each piece develops organically, the artist working instinctively with the material to arrive to the finished work. The plastic, vibrant surfaces invite the audience to approach the works more closely and to enter into a dialogue with its materials.
