Comunicato stampa

Sunday October 3 at 7 pm L'Ascensore presents Sacred Plastics, solo show by Gaston Lisak curated by Maria Abramenko. This exhibition is part of Palermo Art Weekend. Many thanks to Giacomo Rizzo and the Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo for the special collaboration.
Gaston Lisak about his work says: "In my work, I seek to recall an object’s past as well as suggest its greater connection to our collective memories, desires and beliefs. Questioning today’s society, being aware of our surroundings and making visible the invisible

My art form is focused on the “Objet Trouvé” exploring today’s identity through the transformation of found objects, using the collective imaginary and visual culture heritage. Being able to work at the Gipsoteca of the Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo has been fascinating, being immerse in history and tradition."
