NILS GUADAGNIN

CYCLONE FENCE, 2015
Stainless steel, steel, aluminium leaf on tauparlin, various dimensions

Nils Guadagnin is interested by the limits of perception between material and immaterial. He tries to go over the edges of the representation founded on the laws of rationality, attracted by what seems elusive to us, beyond the limits of understanding of certain phenomena.
The presence of the works interacts with the space and points its voids, gaps and reflections. He challenges the visitor senses inviting him to consider the possibility of the intangible or unlimited.

If his practice is driven by a reflection on void, it is as much a research on light. The artist accentuates the ambiguous relation that we keep with reality by revisiting the nature of our perceptions. Space and time find new definitions, while the shapes engage a renewed way to envisage the place of the man in its physical environment.
