A short selection of works from 2012 to 2016

Many of Alex Urso’s dioramas aims to create an “anachronistic” interaction between the artist and authors from the past. Through the dislocation of forms and figures of the Tradition, operated by using the technique of collage and assemblage, he brings forth fragments of past artworks into the present and interacts with them. With each of these elements (authors or scraps of works) Urso plays with irony, interacting to create a dialogue that puts into discussion the authenticity of art history as has been passed down, namely as a succession of certain and creditable events.
