Through environmental installations, sculptures and drawings, Alberto Tadiello (b. 1983) analyzes the correlations between time and space. Probing the relationships that exist between visual and acoustic signals, his poetical engineering creates utopian machines that come to life in a sort of ongoing dysfunctional functionality.
“High means intense, elevated, keen; Gospel, as a technical, musical term, hints at religious faith. It is a chorus of thoughts, influences, and registers that have thickened and condensed, clustering around clots of iron, tractions and rolling motions. High Gospel is a line that runs very far up, a Dolomitic skyline. It has something of celestial music to it, of a psalm, and plays dialectically with the telluric force that the works all share.” – Alberto Tadiello
Published on the occasion of Alberto Tadiello’s solo show at Museo d’Arte Contemporanea—Villa Croce, Genoa, High Gospel offers an overview of the artist’s body of work, and in particular his new series of site-specific pieces—sound installations, large sculptures, drawings, caterpillar tracks imprisoned in their useless mechanical obsolescence—created in response to the classical rooms of the villa.
