Renato Nicolodi - Ni Co Lo Di
This special second-edition monograph showcases a comprehensive selection of Nicolodi's oeuvre, presenting his work in the most compelling way to date.
New edition of the book published in 2015 (ISBN 978-9-49177-592-5).
Renato Nicolodi (born 1980 in Brussels) seeks to evoke a universal sacrality in his work. His sculptures and paintings imagine spaces with corridors and stairs leading to closed-off passageways. Light and shade draw the gaze of the spectator to the inside of the construction, which remains invisible. The core of the work seems to conserve some sort of emptiness. The artist refers to archetypical buildings from past times and cultures, stripping them of their original function, ornament, and dogma.
Contributions by Wim van den Bergh, Ben Overlaet, Joannes Késenne, Marie-Pascale Gildemyn.
