  • Catalogue Essay

    “Ugo Rondinone is a multimedia romantic, who with his highly artificial installations creates stirring moods that have a direct impact on our contemporary awareness of life. Often the observer finds himself beguiled by a wash of colored lights and seductive music, but upon closer examination of the photos, sculptures, texts, ink drawings, paintings, sound, one repeatedly discovers jarring breaks and confusing shifts in the environments in Rondone’s work. Rondinone’s technique consists of a highly complex system of sampling and quotations: references to art, cinema, and design history have strongly influenced his symbolic language as well as his deep sense of poetry of music.” (Gerald Matt, Ugo Rondinone- No How On, Cologne, 2002, n.p.)
