Intentionally not Fitting in : Roberto Cuoghi
The artist, who intentionally defies any sort of categorization with his practice, will now be represented worldwide by Hauser & Wirth.
A simple Google search of the name Roberto Cuoghi hints you to first look at his most famous work—Padre, a project, which began in 1998 where Cuoghi transformed himself into his father. Not in metaphorical kind of way—by the end of that work, he weighed 308 pounds, with gray hair and sunken eyes.
Cuoghi is renowned for a strong emphasis on process and physical change as a manifestation of psychological metamorphosis. He seamlessly slides between different practices, skillfully mastering the techniques of painters, sculptors, musicians, and other disciplines.
Now more audiences in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, as well as England and Switzerland, where Hauser & Wirth gallery has locations, will be able to get acquainted with Cuoghi’s work up-close. At this year’s ADAA Art Show booth in New York, Hauser & Wirth will showcase recent sculptures by Cuoghi, including works from “Putiferio” and “Ether en Flocons” series. Later this year, the Hauser & Wirth gallery in New York will host its first solo show with the artist.
这位艺术家有意通过他的实践挑战任何类别的划分，现在他的作品将由Hauser & Wirth在世界范围内呈现。
现在，在纽约、洛杉矶、香港、英国和瑞士等Hauser & Wirth画廊所在地的观众将能够近距离了解Cuoghi的作品。在今年的纽约ADAA艺术展上，Hauser & Wirth将展出Cuoghi近期的雕塑作品，包括Putiferio和Ether en Flocons系列的作品。今年晚些时候，纽约Hauser & Wirth画廊将举办这位艺术家的首场个展。
