MATTIA BOSCO

MATTIA BOSCO

Biography

Born in Milan in 1976 from a family of painters, Mattia Bosco lives and works between the city and the Ossola mountains. A sculptor with philosophical background, he treats matter as something in which the formal process is already taking place, not as a zero degree of the sculpture. He doesn’t perform the action of sculpting in removing the excess of stone but adapting it to a place. The form naturally emerges, not being invented by the sculptor who, indeed, reveals it as inherent in matter and keep alive the formation process.

He has been showing his work in personal projects at: Palazzo Borromeo, Milano (2019), 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). Among the environmental exhibitions: 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).

Mattia Bosco has been taking part 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 began in 2018, his firs double solo show together with Filippo Armellin dates 2019.
