Monograph by the artist Guido Airoldi (Bergamo, 1977).
"What the decollagists showed is the world become a picture". These concise, but extremely explanatory and meaningful words, they belong to the well-known French critic Pierre Restany, nonché teorico del New Realism. The world, intended as objects, materials, posters, elements produced and made by the company and therefore by man, that the artist makes his own, transforming them and thus giving them a new identity. An unusual perceptive approach to reality, inherent and identity also of the work of Guido Airoldi; an artistic process, which takes shape with a process of appropriation to be subsequently investigated, “Manipulated” and finally reinterpreted.
From the text THE WORLD BECOMES A FRAMEWORK by Alberto Mattia Martini
