The first solo show in Italy for the artist Peter Buggenhout, curated by Simone Menegoi and supported by Banca di Bologna, features two works of great visual impact.
In particular, The Blind Leading the Blind #65 is a “monumental” creation of 10 meters in length and 6 in height, occupying the entire level of the hall of Palazzo De’ Toschi. It is made with a range of materials including iron pipes, plywood panels, carpeting, industrial scrap and construction rubble. A piece of architecture ambiguously perched between construction and destruction, erection and collapse. A powerful, spectacular image.
The second work, The Blind Leading the Blind #25, is an enigmatic object with a rugged irregular form, shown in a case like an archaeological find.
Both works have never before been shown in Italy.
