SPECIAL FEATURE: In Conversation with Francesco De Prezzo

Francesco De Prezzo examines the logics and structures that configure the exhibition space and its different forms of mediation. His work is activated by the interweaving of the presence, absence, substitution, and almost erasement of the work of art as such.

De Prezzo carefully explores the layout and arrangement of the space, using it as a stage on which the viewers circulate in search of clues and fragments that will help them potentially form and construct the artwork. Through a well-constructed narrative, the artist places the object creating situations of ambivalence and questioning the concept of exhibition-making.

Following his project “Placeholder Sculptures” at FORM (Wageningen, The Netherlands), Art Viewer talks to Francesco De Prezzo about his working process.
