Riccardo Cordero - Universe, November 25, 2017 - January 13, 2018, DIE GALERIE
After his art studies in the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti , the Italian sculptor Riccardo Cordero (*1942 ) started working as an artist and was teaching at the academies in Turin, Bologna and Milan. His professorship in Turin continued until 2000. 1978 and 2011, Cordero had a private show at the Venice Biennale. Today he lives and works as an internationally well-known artist in Turin. His monumental, abstract and geometric sculptures made from bronze and steel are showcased all over the world, for example in China, Taiwan, the USA, Germany and Italy. His works are attributed to the concrete and constructive art, even though Cordero is influenced equally by the American expressionism, the Italian futurism and the Turin Barock. His works, selected for the exhibition Universe, are inspired by astrological objects and celestial phenomena and are entitled Luna, Astro, Meteoa, Supernova or Bozzetto nel cosmo infinito. Intertwined line constructions visualize the relativeness of physical forces and the transcendent space becomes obvious, due to leaving empty a certain space. The sculptures by Cordero are built by interlocking lines and interlacing components. Thus, they transport the idea of a micro -and macrocosmic entity. The variable balance of line and space, reflected by changes in the viewers perspective, emphasize the movement of possibilities. The rhythm and dynamics of the three-dimensional sculptures allow the perception of space and time and the immersion into the universe.
