Tornabuoni Art London is proud to present 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
Metamorphoses, created in collaboration with Francesca Pasquali and the Francesca Pasquali Archive, showcases her latest works as well as site-specific installations realised especially by the artist for Tornabuoni Art London. At the exhibition’s core lies the basis of Pasquali’s research: the relationship between nature and artifice. In Pasquali's work the evolutionary and mutative state of microcosmic textures of plants and animals is mirrored in the weaving of recycled plastic materials that shape the artist’s sculptural creations, which constantly change in relation to the spectator. From hard to s oft, from alien to familiar, the materials interact with viewers, who become actors and co-authors of the works as they move around, touch and enter them.
Adding to Pasquali’s intervention in London will be a large-scale installation entitled Spiderwall, on show throughout July at MOCA London and curated by the museum’s director, Dr. Michael Petry. Made up of thousands of simple, colourful cobweb dusters, the immersive work – a plastic cloud floating in the air – illustrates the latest step in Francesca Pasquali’s artistic research.
