A Record of Unaddressed Activity
30/01/2014 > 01/03/2014
PRESS RELEASE FRNLENG

Assunta Ruocco’s practice alludes to the solitude of materials, to unexcavated, unexploited layers of unclassified minerals, never expecting to be found or perceptively consumed. Ceaseless activity does not add up, as double-sidedness and open-endedness enfold inefficiency and non-productivity within the material of the work. The objects emerging through her sets of procedures are simultaneously made and destroyed, presented and removed from view. No back, no front, but a sedimentation without strata.
