Alberto Biasi was involved in the “new artistic conception” of the 1960s, which
called for an art stripped of emotional implications and brought into line with the
latest scientific and technological discoveries, especially in the field of materials.
A founding member of Gruppo N, one of the collectives engaged in kinetic and programmed art in Italy, Biasi studied optical effects in depth and constantly experimented with new artistic formulas of visual perception. It was in 1961 that he began to work with a material congenial to his art, namely sheets of PVC, an elastic
and flexible plastic. In Oblique Dynamics this is cut into thin strips and tautly arranged in a radiating pattern on a wooden support. By observing the work from different angles and realizing some of its endless perceptual possibilities, the viewer becomes a sort of co-author. (Transl. by Paul Metcalfe per Scriptum, Roma)
