Alessandro Agudio

Milan, 1982. Lives in Milan

Agudio’s work comprises sculptures and installations on an environmental scale, all of which explore the lifestyle concept and the ways in which it emerges. His pieces often draw from the legacy of formats and functions of design, being configured as artifacts that could potentially be assimilated within the domestic environment, but which are actually designed to overturn our perception of it. The critical potential of Agudio’s works is encompassed within the surface of the objects: he favors plastic laminates, fabrics, mirrors, etc., for their tendency towards immateriality together with their predisposition for condensing sociocultural values, becoming demonstrations of a lifestyle—a designer object, an item of clothing, and so on—as well as of social status.
