closed Sandy Skoglund. Hybrid visions

The show

Exhibition curated by Germano Celant

The important exhibition “ Sandy Skoglund. Hybrid Visions ”, the first anthology of the American artist Sandy Skoglund (1946).

The exhibition brings together works ranging from the beginnings in the early seventies to the still unpublished work “Winter”, on which the artist has worked for over ten years. It will be this image - accompanied by some of the sculptures created for the installation from which the photograph was taken - the fulcrum of the exhibition: a spectacular world premiere that once again confirms the uniqueness of his research and his language, formed in full conceptual climate to evolve into an imaginary suspended between dream and reality, of extraordinary evocative power.

The exhibition therefore allows you to follow this path through over one hundred works including photographs, almost all of large format, and sculptures. They range from the first photographic series produced in the mid-seventies, where the characteristic themes of the domestic interior and its transformation into a place of apparitions between comic and disturbing already emerge, up to the great compositions of the early eighties, which gave the artist international fame. In particular, we remember the visionary "Radioactive cats" of 1980 and "Revenge of the goldfish" of 1981, authentic icons of the period, surreal and alienating reinterpretations of familiar environments with unlikely colors, invaded by green cats and flying fish.
