Holster Projects is pleased present Mattia Biagi’s first solo show in the United Kingdom, Recognize Your Spiritual Need. Intrigued by a generational trend towards self-perceived liberalism that is often
accompanied by a paradoxical close-mindedness towards religion, Biagi’s tar-dripped sculptures call for a re-examining of contemporary spirituality.
Biagi’s message is universal, without distinction of races, ethnicities, or religions. The exhibition does not promote any dogma or any particular belief but conveys a positive message of hope. Instead, with works like Jesus Save Me, Biagi hopes to create an instant awareness of the need for the recovery of spiritual values in a chaotic society that is constantly moving more and more towards a profit-oriented world.
Born in Italy and living in working in LA, Biagi’s art covers issues from war to materialism in the artist’s study of his own personal journey .
