Riccardo Benassi’s works are the result of an articulated assemblage of images, sounds, colors, texts, design objects, and diverse materials, which are put together to generate large-scale installations, videos, performances, artist’s books, and sculptural elements. Benassi reflects on the impact of technology in our daily relation to space, and how technological devices have radically altered the structures for living and organizing the real, from architecture to politics and cultural production and consumption.
With Sleep’n’Spleen the artist will be presenting two different environments on the two levels of the exhibition space, one of them a site-specific environment composed by text works, an acousmatic sound installation, take-away stickers, a special wall clock and an outdoor banner.
With Sleep’n’Spleen Benassi focuses on the possibility for a piece of art of acting as a direct yet impartial advice that – despite the minimal set up – intends to address the entirety of our human condition.
Riccardo Benassi, *1982, grew up in Cremona, Italy and currently lives and works in Berlin.
