Francesco Cagnin

Mirano (VE), 1988. Lives in Zurich

Cagnin creates simple, unadorned and vivid works, all characterized by a singular polemical trait with regard to the production and distribution strategies of the contemporary art establishment. Whether configured as piles of A4 sheets on which the artist prints out the curricula vitae of numerous artists (piles that inevitably come to resemble monolithic columns that explicitly recall minimalism), or as complex installations that mimic the processes of virtualization and sensory deprivation that currently threaten artworks, Canin’s pieces call for a renewal in the established forms of institutional criticism.
