A series of exhibitions devoted to materials and handicrafts

Here we have a series of Capodimonte sculptures that clearly reveal the Milanese artist’s great expertise. A champion of Situationism, he adopts a playful but also sardonic way of picking on the quirks and mannerisms of contemporary society.

Francesco Demolfetta, alias Demo, is one of the champions of an Italian form of neo-Pop that tends towards the conceptual, in which wry Situationist actions are accompanied by a close focus on materials and on aesthetic aspects. His amazing manual skills and technical brilliance allow him to bring about a sort of deviation, in which, while disparaging or simply making fun, a tradition of materials extols a post-modern vision, often inspired by advertising.
Also his recent porcelain works, made in the style of Capodimonte and the result of his technical bravura in terms of composition and third-fired glazing, are exquisite allegories of the vices of modernity. They symbolise the incommunicability to which, paradoxically, our new means of communication have consigned us.
