"Milan. The year 1949. Lucio Fontana is working in his studio on corso Monforte. He’s not happy with how a picture is coming along so he decides to destroy it. He takes a knife and... ZAC!"
With his disruptive and innovative move, Lucio Fontana managed to synthesise something unique: he was able to represent space, infinite space, through a cut in the canvas. This was how he created his famous Spatial Concepts, works make from holes and cuts in paper, clay, canvas or metal, which Fontana created with focus and determination.
The same series, in which the artist Fausto Gilberti recounts the works of the great figures in contemporary art with a clever and fun twist, includes the stories of Yves Klein, Jackson Pollock, Marcel Duchamp, Piero Manzoni, Yayoi Kusama and Banksy.
