Born in 1973 in Brindisi (Italy), Giuseppe Gabellone lives and works in Paris since 2004.

Through his practice, which combines several mediums, Gabellone created the basis for his synthesis of the surreal, the classical and the baroque. His work is characterized by strict formal research and constant experimentation with different mediums and their idioms and materials, resulting in an analytic reflection on the use of space. Since the beginning of the 2000’s, he has been investigating different types of wall sculpture, reinterpreting traditional Italian wall relief. The work investigates the dialectics between two and three dimensions, and between representation and ornament. “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.

Gabellone’s artworks have been exhibited in several institutions such as: Fondazione Sandretto, Turin/IT (2019); Fondazione Prada (curated by Luc-Tuymans), Milan/IT (2018); Triennale of Milan (curated by Vincenzo de Bellis), Milan/IT (2015); GAMeC, Milan/IT (2013); greengrassi, London/UK (2017); Perrotin, Paris/FR (2011); Palais de Tokyo (curated by François Piron), Paris/FR (2013); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago/US (2008) Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Bologna/IT (2005); Kunsthalle Wien, Vienne/AT (2004); Hara Museum, Tokyo/JP (2001); Centre Pompidou, Paris/FR (2001); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2000); Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin/IT (2000); SMAK, Gent/BG (2000). He presented his work on the occasions of the Venice Biennial (1997, 2003), the Sydney Biennial (1998) and Documenta, Kassel (2002). His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, the Centre Pompidou Paris, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Turin amongst others.
