Un Sedicesimo 52
"So if we throw triangles, squares and circles into the air as if they were pieces of colourful confetti, the wind will rotate them for us and, if we are lucky, they will land as cones, cylinders and spheres."
Alice Ronchi’s Coriandoli are essential and delicate geometric shapes, hanging in a magical atmosphere, which amaze us with their lightness.
Alice Ronchiborn in 1989, is an artist who lives and works in Milan. She graduated in 2012 from NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, and in 2015 from the Sandberg Insituut in Amsterdam. In her works, everyday objects meet the world of invention and fantasy.
The search for wonder is a constant theme in her work, populated by familiar yet enigmatic figures, the product of an abstract reworking. Somewhere in between playful and minimal, her work is a perfect synthesis between the rigidity of form and simplicity of expression.
With the use of different media, ranging from sculpture to photography, from performance to video, Ronchi questions reality through a careful and curious gaze, giving us her magical vision.
