Jasper Sharp, Christoph Doswald
JRP/Ringier, 2009 - Art - 92 pages
The imposing machine-sculptures of Arcangelo Sassolino (born 1967) draw on the character and functions of construction equipment, often exercising extreme force on a range of materials with a detached sci-fi ominousness. This first monograph provides a rich visual appraisal of the artist's works and an overview of their historical context.
