Mattia Bosco

Mattia Bosco was born in Milan in 1976 from a family of painters, he lives and works between Milan and the Ossola mountains. As sculptor with a philosophical background, in his work he starts from the consideration of matter as something in which the formal process is already taking place, and not as a zero degree of sculpture. The action of sculpting is not realized as a removal of the superfluous but as an adaptation to a place. Therefore, the form naturally emerges, without being invented by the sculptor who, indeed, finds it in things and continues the process of formation.

Exhibition projects dedicated to him were held in: Ex Cimitero San Pietro in Vincoli, Turin (2018), Mars, Milan (2017), Museo Diocesano, Milan (2015, 2008), Triennale Design Museum, Milan (2013), Limewharf, London (2013), Church of St. Stefano, Milan (2007). His sculptural works have been part of environmental exhibitions such as Frieze Sculpture Park, London (2015), Country Unlimited, Cascina Maria (2018, 2017), Dolomiti Contemporanee, Pieve di Cadore (2017) and Casso (2014), Museo del Marmo, Carrara (2014). He participated in group exhibitions in international institutions such as Museum Tinguely, Basel (2015), Camec, La Spezia (2015), Triennale Design Museum, Milan (2010), La Permanente, Milan (2009). In 2014 he was elected among the finalists of the XV Cairo Award, and in 2012 he came second ex aequo at the Henraux Foundation Award.

His collaboration with Galleria Fumagalli begins in 2018.
