One of the most challenging and engaging artists emerging today, Italian artist Giuseppe Gabellone laboriously constructs structures—some sleek and minimal, others biomorphic and earthy—frequently destroying them soon after he takes a photograph. The resulting images plumb our associations with documentary photography and with ideas of presence and absence. This catalogue, essential to understanding the creative world of Gabellone, is published in conjunction with the first exhibition of Gabellone’s work in the United States, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (MCA). The essay by MCA Manilow Senior Curator Francesco Bonami is an insightful and comprehensive introduction to Gabellone’s art.
