Alberto Salvadori, ed.
Texts by Ines Dahn, Davide Daninos, Denise Lombardi, and Michele Maggiolini.

Published to accompany Martini’s first solo show in an Italian art institution, Nervo Vago takes the form of an anthropological essay composed of multiple contributions, offering different perspectives on the concepts and contingencies that lie behind the practice of the young Italian artist.

“Nicola Martini’s work creates a concrete universe, different from nature. He relies on his own powers to forcibly bend the obscure ones of matter, the laws of physics, bridging the schism between the manual realm of action and the mechanical one of nature. To achieve this, he uses every possible means to alter the physical state of a material, employing methods that have defined the difference between human and animal since history began, like fire and the subsequent invention of cooking.” – Alberto Salvadori
