Contemporary Art fair, Scope New York opened its doors to the public today and will continue through March 7, 2010. Over the next few days, I will be highlighting a few of the exhibiting galleries and pointing out pieces that caught my eye.
Founded in Naples and with space in Milan as well, Mimmoscognamiglio Arte Contemporanea is showing several strong sculptural works by Pepe Perone. All are untitled, and made of wood, steel and cast sand. Household objects are commonly figured in rather humorous fashion and the use of sand requires some investigation – the identity of the material not immediately apparent. Examples of Perone’s work are both above and immediately after the jump.
Also shown at the Mimmoscognamigilio Arte Contemporanea booth is Adrian Tranquilli, an Australian now based in Rome. His photographic work exhibits a bit of a superhero fetish.
