Salvatore Arancio: Alternating Layers of Contrasting Resistance
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Arancio creates a trippy Jules Verne-like world of melting mountains and anthropomorphised volcanic rock. In photographs of the alps, craggy black outcroppings reach out to the sky. Around the gallery, sculptural blobs of multi-coloured igneous extrusions twist into alien forms. In video pieces, distant planets spin and rumble and prehistoric humans creep across rough, convulsing landscapes. It’s a bizarre, psychedelic world where geological phenomena mutate, grow and shape-shift into semi-living constructions.
