FONTANA CERAMICS IN PARISA Private Exhibition of Lucio Fontana's Pioneering Ceramics, From 15 February
Throughout his career, in works which defied traditional categories of painting and sculpture, Lucio Fontana relentlessly explored the three-dimensional properties of a wide range of materials. Vividly animating and rupturing the space around them, Fontana’s ceramics, both abstract and figurative, are among the artist’s most innovative and experimental works. Robilant+Voena will be showing a selection of these groundbreaking works in our Paris space.
IMMATERIAL: LUCIO FONTANA CERAMICSA catalogue exploring Fontana's innovative and experimental ceramics
Lucio Fontana, the artist recognised for taking abstract painting into the third dimension by slashing his canvases, unsurprisingly started his career as a sculptor. Lesser known is his work as a ceramicist, which began in the mid-1930s and awakened an exploration of materiality, which profoundly informed his practive as an artist. This interest was developed parallel to his painting and was, in many ways, indistinguishable from his work as a sculptor.
Read more about Fontana's extraordinary ceramics in Robilant+Voena's catalogue, written by Paolo Campiglio.
