Carpenters Workshop Gallery | Paris will present a new body of work by Vincenzo De Cotiis in the exhibition Éternel which will be the artist’s first solo show in France. The new collection signs the evolution of De Cotiis’ practice towards contemporary art.
Éternel features sculptural pieces that seek to forget functionality and submit to influences of a distant memory of the East. Preoccupied with the weathering effect of time, Vincenzo De Cotiis layered experimental materials into organic geometries.
Éternel — french for eternal — features sculptural pieces by Vincenzo de Cotiis that place time, ageing and preservation at the forefront.
“The ethereal luminescence and transparency of the materials used, such as Murano glass and iridescent metals, alter perception while the sutures attempt the impossible: patching time…’ – Vincenzo De Cotiis
The Milan-based artist and designer has extended his vision further into the art gallery space itself, adding character through his redesign of the space: rough and imperfect surfaces combined with clean and minimalistic details give the gallery a new identity.
