Guido Casaretto's s solo show 'The Ghosts of Matter' at MOCAK, Krakow (08/10/2019)

Guido Casaretto's new solo exhibition titled 'The Ghosts of Matter' will take place at MOCAK - The Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Poland. Curated by Agnieszka Sachar, the show is opening on October 24, 2019 and running until March 22, 2020.


Guido Casaretto is interested in matter per se – the sea, mountains, the universe, but also stone and wood. He also investigates the processed matter, analysing the characteristics of furniture and ceilings. The corollary of such pursuit is his interest in the ‘human matter’. In respect of primary materials, he uses traditional techniques, incorporating the experience of painters, sculptures and craftsmen. With manmade objects, his methods are more complex – for example, he pulverises wardrobes, and fashions the resultant powdered wood and glass, mixed with glue, into useless replicas of the original objects.
