Franco Mazzucchelli

Biography

Picture Franco Mazzucchelli

Born in 1939 in Milan, where he still lives and works.
It 'teaches techniques of the sculpture at the Brera Academy. His artistic production seems to follow with particular adjacency coordinates of the contemporary cultural climate by analyzing the problem of space and its usability in a wide sense. The Leavers, PVC inflatable structures, left in public places, are designed to interact with people.
Substitutions with the artificial nature of the work (huge bubbles of thin polyethylene) reverses the normal enjoyment of a domestic remedy and forcing people to reinvent the domestic space and its practicability. The reappropriation of the mid-seventies reproduce the problem in the external replacements, encouraging the rediscovery of public places because they lived from unusual angles. Similarly, the number of stage sets Mazzucchelli, starting dall'illusorietà of rappesentazione, play, favored by the charm of synthetic plastic materials, the ambiguous relationship between inside and outside, between nature and artifice.
