GIULIO PAOLINI

HALL 2.0

STAND F16

(1940, Genoa)

The artwork was first exhibited in 2023 at the art show "A come Accademia" at the Accademia di San Luca in Rome. It was then featured in the artist's solo show at Galleria Christian Stein, Milan in 2023. In the artist's own words: “In making this work I wanted to create the image of a figure that enjoys 'placing itself inside a frame'. [...] In this sort of dance of the frames, one of them, as if it had been chosen among the others, is displayed on the portico wall"

Giulio Paolini has been working with Christian Stein since 1967.

His use of various materials (including plaster casts, drawings, objects, and photographs) symbolizes the signs and images of time. The history of art and its images are utilized as a medium, creating a poetic language made of references and fragments.
