On the occasion of the upcoming Marco Maggi’s personal show in our Paris gallery, Xippas is happy to dedicate new episode of Cinema Room to his work. Micro-revolution, a program by Marco Maggi, will consist of two chapters featuring two separate films, gradually introducing you into the artist’s vertiginous universe of detail and precision.
Marco Maggi, an iconic Uruguayan artist, transforms simple materials manufactured for everyone’s use (such as sheets of paper, aluminum, Plexiglas, envelops) into a topographic map of details, alluding to everyday life and privileging the micro over the macro. Whether it is through cutouts or drawings, in situ installations or sculptures, he urges us to come closer and pay attention to meticulous and invisible from far objects. To slow down too, what seems so necessary in our fast moving and informationally overloaded world.
