#CURATORPILL

Aldo Mondino (Turin, Italy, 1938; Turin, Italy, 2005). Despite it has been fifteen years since Aldo Mondino’s death, his imagery is nevertheless contemporary and vivid thanks to his never-ending experimentation and curiosity on places and humanity. Mondino was an artist characterized by an ironic approach to art. He used many different kinds of materials for his works, including caramel and chocolate, to a more traditional oil painting (but on plastic sheets). He is widely known for mosaics realized using chocolate, seeds, coffee, legumes and many other different materials.

Each week Rossella Farinotti, our curator, selects 6 interesting artworks on Kooness choosing artists from different generations, mediums, countries and approaches to contemporary art, indicating the reasons why it’s worth understanding the artwork.
