KALEIDOSCOPE | Eric N. Mack
Kaleidoscope will take over the entire surface of Spazio Maiocchi in Milan, curating a multimedia experience which brings together a diverse selection of international artists featured in the magazine’s newly-released Fall/Winter issue. After a two-month residency at Spazio Maiocchi, American artist Eric N. Mack allows visitors into his temporary studio, presenting it as an installation and a glimpse into his creative process. A language of the suspended pile, the messy space, of bodies leaving traces behind, the artist’s shamanic combinations of textile, newspaper pages and fragments of everyday objects have an architectural, even Baroque ambition—his painterly gestures sublimated into a “ballad of the black mundane.”
