Loris Cecchini: endless material permutations that offer alternative spatial possibilities

Loris Cecchini was born in 1969 and lives and works in Milan. He is an important figure on the Italian and international art scene coming to prominence through his sculpture, installation, photography and drawings. His works are often occupied by a metamorphosis, a potential transfiguration from one form to another. The relationship between the artist and the exhibition space as a place of cohabitation is influential in the genesis of many of Cecchini’s works. Surreal photomontages, grey monochromatic rubber installations, modular-based suspended installations, reticular structures and molecular forms are flexible not only in their occupation of their surrounding space but also in their development; the works are almost always potentially open to further elaborations like an expansive and distributive substance. 

Loris Cecchini’s installation practises developed over the years following his abandonment of the “replicas of objects”, that is the leaving behind of obvious representation of objects to create an image that contains a potential action in the work and suggests a natural energy evoked by the recent bursting of bubbles, vibrations, emergences on the walls, cloud expansion, waves, cocoons, crystals and germinations. The work becomes less and less concentrated on a direct human presence, which is something present in Loris Cecchini’s early series of photo assemblages, but more focused on indirect human presence which takes the form of bookcases, windows and architectural forms. Scientific research and natural processes are immediate reference points for Cecchini’s works which neither represent nor intend to simulate the world but suggest alternative variations and developments of it.

Tonelli, Palazzo Collicola, Spoleto, Italy (2019); “Waterbones”, permanent installation, curated by RAID Caterpillar, Teatro Comunale, L’Aquila, Italy (2019); “Emulsione”, Atrio Monumentale - ASP ITIS, Trieste, Italy (2019); “The developed seed”, permanent installation, Beijing Fun, Beijing, China (2018); “Loris Cecchini”, The St. Regis, Rome, Italy (2018); “The Ineffable Gardener”, Galleria Continua, San Gimignano, Italy (2018); “The ineffable gardener and inherent transience”, permanent installation, The Bridge at Cornell Tech, New York, USA (2018); “Loris Cecchini and Dirk Salz”, Diana Lowenstein Gallery, Miami, USA (2018); “Waterbones”, temporary project, Art Hotel Facade, Florence, Italy (2018); “Loris Cecchini”, Galerie Aveline/Jean - Marie Rossi, Paris (2017); “Waterbones”, permanent installation, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Main Library, Columbus, USA (2017);  “Waterbones”, curated by H.
