Participating in two of the four paths of the exhibition (Total recall and Disobedience), Rub Kandy offers us the construction of a new city starting from scrap elements left by a centuries-old city. A work that never reiterate itself and shows similarity to the place where it was created. While the recycled polystyrene wrappers taken from the city are the basic module from which the artist started, the concrete is the element that gives shape to the work. The result is monolithic, orderly and apparently unalterable. Its form is the result of what has been given back and then found. In another place and time this may well be different.

  • Bio: Mimmo Rubino, noto come Rub Kandy, è un artista romano difficile da collocare in un ambito artistico specifico. Le sue opere sono taglienti e curate: grande osservatore del contesto urbano, lo decostruisce attraverso immagini dal forte impatto visivo. Mostrando una grande capacità nell’unire diversi media in modo molto naturale, Rub Kandy punta anche ad eliminare la soglia tra ciò che viene convenzionalmente considerato arte di strada e le pratiche più tradizionali di arte contemporanea, di solito legate ad uno spazio espositivo chiuso.
