DESCRIPTION

Marco Maggi’s Project Room will consist of various sculptural installations reflecting his interest in mapping, anthropology, architecture, and language, such as in his recent sculpture HOTBED (ORANGE), 2009, in which he covered the floor of The Warehouse Gallery in New York, with reams of paper and created tiny paper sculptures on them with a razorblade, as a revision of Henri Matisse’s paper cut-outs. Maggi is best known for his use of everyday and industrial materials such as Plexiglas, acrylic, aluminum foil, paper and cardboard, on which he inscribes a vocabulary that evokes pre-Columbian cultures and early twentieth-century Russian Constructivism. As the artist states, his “drawings resemble writing in a language [he] cannot read,” referring to the modern concept that a drawing reflects thought process.
