The Quasi-Objects CycleErotica // Monday, 13 Feb 2012
Though not intentionally sexual or erotic, Lorenzo Oggiano's series of fleshy, bulbous, glistening printed sculptural works 'Quasi-Objects' leave the imagination lost in trying to define these pink, curvaceous mounds as something more figurative than not. 'A (still in progress) series of studies produced since 2010 belonging to the Quasi-Objects cycle, all of these works are printed using pigment-based inks on Hahnemühle archival paper, variable dimensions, edition of 3+1 ap."Quasi-Objects" is an art project consisting of 3d generated videos and prints, a practice of "organic re-design" - started in 2003 and still in progress - that aims to stimulate thought and dialogue on the progressive relativisation of natural forms of life as a result of techno-biological evolution. "Quasi-Objects" regards data actualization, the production of biologically non-functional organisms and ecosystems as transient output of an operative practice: aesthetics of process.
"Life is a real and autonomous process independent from any specific material manifestation."'
