Bruno Gironcoli experimented with the boundaries of sculpture in the field of tension between sculpture, design and installation since 1965. While many sculptor colleagues tried to dissolve the concept of sculpture, this artist professed a „classical“ and in this sense conventional art form. For Gironcoli, however, the term „convention“ does not conceal a recourse to academic tradition, but rather the intention to further develop sculpture as an art of meaning-bearing objects. With a reduced vocabulary, he has created a novel and individual visual language and semantics from this question. The exhibition and catalogue show the path of this extraordinary sculptor from his early objects and installations to the proliferating sculptures of his late work.
