The Inner World of Alessandro Teoldi

The Inner World of Alessandro Teoldi
#Exhibitions

Hands, arms, bodies, mouths, gazes, but also subjects/objects belonging to the humble sphere of daily life suspended in a “non-time” and in a “non-place” are the protagonists of the first personal exhibition of Alessandro Teoldi at Capsule Shanghai. Built around two different bodies of work, the exhibition presents the latest experiments of the artist created with a material present for years in his visual vocabulary - blankets from various airlines, some gathered by the artist during his travels, others by friends and acquaintances. A new group of small works created in cement flank the more traditional works of the artist. Apparently contrasting materials yet complementary, characterised by aesthetically and conceptually composite textures, mix sentiments of warmth and detachment, familiarity and alienation, dynamism and immobility, recreating the ample spectrum of human emotions. An exhibition that, with rare mastery, poetry and intensity, invites the spectator to introspection.
