Michael Joo at Galleria Marabini

February 24, 2010 by Ellie

Michael Joo is currently presenting his first Italian retrospective at Galleria Marabini, Bologna.

The show features fifteen works of diverse medium, including canvas-mounted hand-built plastic relief, sculpture and print. The works include Improved Rack, a deer antler that has been sectioned off and recomposed that suggests potential growth; Consumptive (selbst-bildnis for DH) a sculptural work in which an Italian sausage is made of plastic; Stripped Surface (Brachii) a canvas work that reminds one of zebra skin and Stripped Reflection (Lucifer’s Legacy) a “glass canvas” playing with the double; the work of art and its shadows reflected on the wall. In transforming familiar objects Joo's works reinterprets them, and viewers will experience the artist's unique reconciliation of the aesthetic and philosophical reflections on the unfamiliar.
