Andrea Bianconi reconstructs the world by means of its very own ruins. His oeuvre is an incessant wandering amidst dreams, obsessions, risks, surprises, and an endless roaming among the fragments of words and things. A spectacle that is both delirium and destruction, assemblage and disassemblage: all this in order to reach an apparent reality: the “Fantasy Ridge dell’Everest” (as the artist himself calls it). More than a method, it’s an idea, the pathway of the imagination. In the piles of books, in the remains of living experience, in the cages—at once prisons and shelters—in the cascades of poor commemorative objects, the artist establishes temporary contiguity and unlikely proximity, reawakening the “demon of analogy,” pushing beyond the confines of reality.
