Giuseppe Gabellone

°1973, Italy

Giuseppe Gabellone makes monumental sculptures. He uses labour intensive techniques and materials and the production of his works takes a lot of time. Once the work is finished, everything is destroyed by the artist. Just before the destruction a picture is taken of the original work. In this way he emphasises the uniqueness: only one sculpture is made, only one photograph is taken. Through his work Gabellone examines the role and place of a sculpture and the sculptural intervention in the public space. For Beaufort03 he chose a series of small photos, showing canvases, on which pictures were printed. These were collected from newspapers, magazines and books over the years.
