André Komatsu is a key exponent of contemporary art by young Brazilian artists. With this edition of Continua XXL Online we present his large installation “Febre do Ouro” 2014. The work came to Galleria Continua / San Gimignano as part of the artist’s first solo show at the gallery.
Extending across the length of the stalls area of the ex-cinema space, the work consists of a series of steel caged structures that interlock and diminish gradually in size, each containing a single hanging light bulb. The viewer can’t help but want to explore the ever-dwindling spaces while being drawn to the constantly increasing brightness of the lamp. This work starts a dialogue on man’s desire for power, the relationship between public and private, and control and isolation.
Continua XXL Online brings you some of our artists’ biggest projects. With previously unseen content, as well as exclusive insight from both artists and gallerists...about their working relationships and production, Continua XXL Online is a comprehensive experience in understanding large installations and artworks.
