Luca Monterastelli - Pardon Façade
Luca Monterastelli (b. 1983) develops an entirely individual, contemporary, sculptural vocabulary. His sculptures often consist of vertical, vaguely anthropomorphic forms, which create formal paradoxes that encourage the viewer to explore the work from up close. Pardon Façade documents the artistic output of Monterastelli, showcasing almost all of the sculptures and installations that he produced between 2011 and 2022. With four chapters corresponding to four solo shows that he staged in Milan, Otegem, Antwerp and Naples, the architecture of the book is structured around the photographic documentation of these exhibitions, each introduced with a text written by the artist for the occasion.
