Fabio Mauri: Oscuramento, The Wars of Fabio at Hauser & Wirth London

Visiting Mauri's room Installation Oscuramente: Il Gran Consiglio from 1975 is like watching a Thrilling movie that gives you goosebumps as the plot thickens. It's a visual masterpiece to say the least.

I fell in love with the conceptual minimalist piece also from 1975 titled Language is War hugging the outside of the room consisting of 88 parts of found photo reproductions mounted on foam board with artist stamp. it still felt contemporary in this day and age.

 

There's a last performance on Saturday February 6, 2016 at 1pm to add to the excitement if you are planning to vist
