The Wunderkammern Offers 15 Years of Biancoshock
#Art

On one hand, white, a non-colour that stimulates thought and experimentation, perfectly adapted to the walls of a museum; on the other, the shock of a street action, often ironic, always immediate, always recognisable. These are the two faces of Biancoshock, artist originally from Milan who has been working ceaselessly for the last 15 years, with more than 1000 works of public art throughout 27 nations globally, along with exhibitions at venues like the MACRO in Rome and the Saatchi Gallery in London. Today, Biancoshock celebrates at the Wunderkammern with a well-earned retrospective eloquently entitled: Disturbe. “All of my actions are conceived as visual and emotional disturbances - an artwork is efficient if, in a few seconds, it is able to capture your attention, transmit a message and then let you continue doing what you were doing, maybe with a smile on your lips or another question mark in your mind,” says the artist. At the Milanese gallery, Biancoshock retraces every step of his journey over the years, from the world of graffiti to Ephemeralism, the movement he began to save less-durable works of art from being relegated to oblivion. Installations, sculptures, video-performances, objects, prints and testimonies of urban art actions alternate in an itinerary which explores ambivalence - intimacy, research and conceptual creations are placed next to the explosive and universal power of street art.
