Arcangelo Sassolino: Not Human is the Italian sculptor’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. Through a signature industrial aesthetic, Sassolino creates anthropomorphic, kinetic objects that breathe, explode, rupture, and crush. Working with a team of experts throughout the planning and execution process, Sassolino carefully calibrates the rhythm and velocity of these actions. Creating encounters that are as urgent as they are captivating, Sassolino’s work reveals the tension between fascination and fear when we are confronted with a dangerous act, cognizant of the violence taking place yet absorbed by its capacity for beauty.
