Stefano Calligaro - Poetricks
|Status||not yet published|
Stefano Calligaro presents his collection of literal “poetical-tricks” consisting of modified words and common terms, silly but clever verbal glitches that challenge established social and cultural codes through visual simplicity and a precise but deliberate (mis)use of language. The series originated with the aim of becoming a “visual ecology of signs and meanings”, in contrast to the hyper-spectacle often seen in art and culture in general today. “Poetricks” are simultaneously artworks and tools the artist uses to question and redefine the essence, meaning, and boundaries of art, language, and poetry. Calligaro is known for his ironic and anarchic questioning of art and the role of the artist.
