Biography:

Born in 1973 in Brindisi (Italy), Giuseppe Gabellone lives and works in Paris.

“Trying new things is the driving force”, he henceforth explains. He has thus set aside the production of photography of sculptures (certainly the most well-known facet of his work) to invest frontally in the sculptural field. Each new project gives way to material experimentation, the artist prefers those with which he can work alone in his studio and that he can manage on his own. His method consists of finding the material that suits the atmosphere and the type of image he has in mind: it is thus impossible for him to make a preparatory drawing. If the term ‘radical’ is often overused to the point that we strangely appoint it with superlatives (‘very radical’, ‘deeply radical’, ‘really radical’), it perfectly applies to this independence cultivated with stubbornness, and to this rigorous exploration of methods and mediums of sculpture.

Gabellone’s artworks have been exhibited in several institutions such as : Fondazione Prada (curated by Luc-Tuymans), Milan ; Fondazione Sandretto, Turin ; Triennale of Milan ; GAMeC, Milan ; galleria Zero, Milan ; greengrassi, London ; Perrotin, Paris  ; Palais de Tokyo, Paris ; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. His work is part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the Pompidou Center, Paris.
