> DESCRIPTION

For Antonio Rovaldi (Italian, b. Parma, 1975; lives and works in Milan), frequent long-distance walks and bike rides provide an open-air studio for him to contemplate landscape, space, and distance. These elements are often key to his drawings, sculpture, photography, performance, and video art. In The Opening Day, 2009, a pitcher takes aim at mass-produced ceramics displayed as if they are classical still lifes. The artist uses the intangible arc of a fastball to create suspense. Perhaps a metaphor is also at play: has moving-image work, once considered to be outside the realm of fine art, now shattered this hierarchy?
