Abstract

Corrado Bonomi is among the keenest voices to portray an ironic, all-Italian art that embarks on independent paths free from any type of conditioning. Through 200 artworks, this first monograph (curated by Alberto Fiz) illustrates a forty-year study ranging from Topo Gigio to Stanley Kubrick by way of René Magritte and Pino Pascali. The idea is to transform all data – whether comics, literary texts or films – into art. Driven by a boundless desire to stage the most diverse facets of life, the artist from Novara commandeers both content and subjects and, much like a skilled juggler, uses them at will. His tendency to quote from previous artists is deceptive, as it does not envisage to re-propose the original but, rather, its visionary metamorphosis within a framework where art and life go arm in arm. In short, Bonomi disconcerts taste and knowledge alike.
