ONCE UPON A TIME THE REPETITION
18th of March / 15th of april 2017
Vernissage: Saturday 18th of March at 18,30
EGG Visual Art is pleased to host the exhibition of Gianpaolo Pagni.
The artist will present a preview of his new book, Patternoster, together with its new publishing house (Solo Ma non Troppo, France). Pagni is a multidisciplinary artist somewhere between contemporary art, publishing and illustration. Born in Turin in 1969 and graduated to Fine Arts in Orléans, lives and works in Paris. The artist uses stamps (which he realizes on his own), as a working tool on various supports, especially on medical folders, old school books but also on newspapers and museums leaflets. The repetition of marks and the partial cancellation of printed pages becomes the fundamental structure of his artistic production. In his drawings, like in his pictorial work, the principle of recycling and the glitch interrogate the instability of everything.
“The track left by a stamp is never the same and every hit of a pad is a surprise” (Gianpaolo Pagni).
Since the mid-90s he is working with the national and international press (Le Monde, Libération, So Foot, The Obs, Le An, Le Tigre, International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, La Stampa), with several publishing houses, cultural events and the Maison Hermès.
THE EXHIBITION WILL BE OPEN UNTIL 15th April, 2017
