Galleria Ramo presents the two-person show, “Risky Hardware,” featuring the works of Hyun Cho and Nicolò Masiero Sgrinzatto, on view through July 25.
Curated by Riccardo Lisi, the exhibition is split into two rooms. The Paduan artist, Nicolò Masiero Sgrinzatto presents the first chapter of the project “Altro giro, altra corsa,” a series of works that arise from the carnival game of bumper cars. Visitors can freely ride on the bumper cars, but only with a special plastic key, available only to amusement park owners. These keys therefore have a high specific value, and are “a metaphor of incessant conflict, confrontation and self-confrontation.”
The second room of the gallery houses the works of Hyun Cho. The artist’s light art, like a small neon work UP TO 200% OFF, is a recreation of a possible street in Korea that is the territory for skaters. The Korean artist chose to take risks by creating sculptures that are the result of unusual unions. These works are a true expression of the artist’s cultural mix, having lived for many years in New York before settling in Europe.
