"Milan. The year 1949.
Lucio Fontana is working in his studio on corso Monforte.
He’s not happy with how a picture is coming along so he decides to destroy it.
He takes a knife and... ZAC!"
With his disruptive and innovative move, Lucio Fontana managed to synthesise something unique: he was able to represent space, infinite space, through a cut in the canvas. This was how he created his famous Spatial Concepts, works make from holes and cuts in paper, clay, canvas or metal, which Fontana created with focus and determination.
Following books dedicated to Piero Manzoni, Yves Klein, Jackson Pollock and Marcel Duchamp, Fausto Gilberti’s collection of books, which intelligently and amusingly tell us about the work of the great protagonists of contemporary art, continues to grow.
