Giovanni Kronenberg

(Milan, Italy, 1974)

Giovanni Kronenberg (Milan, Italy, 1974) lives and works in Milan. Since his beginning, the artist has developed a body of work based on interaction between sculptures and drawings: artifacts or rare, precious natural finds – the artist likes to literally define them as “not consumed from the gazes” – that are often collector’s items, on which he contributes with insertions and little transformation that put different ages, usually not connected one’s another, in contact. Through actions like twisting, blockage, replacement, overlapping – but also, on the contrary, by temporarily and ephemeral interventions.The construction of combinatory grammar underpins Kronenberg’s work, a language that acts on the slow sedimentation of the evocative quality inherent in objects and on the subsequent alteration of those ones through forms of intrusion. Select solo exhibions include: Studio Guenzani, Milan (2006, 2007 e 2012), Z2O Sara Zanin, Rome (2016, 2019), Renata Fabbri Arte Contemporanea, Milan (2017, 2020), galleria Fuoricampo, Siena/Bruxelles (2014).
