New solo show of Josè Angelino. The artist presents an installation of glass works connected to sound and others contained in metal structures.

Inspired by the “dissipative structures” conceived by Ilya Prigogine, the works of Josè Angelino interact each other and create a continuous movement between themselves. Prigogine’s structures outline short areas of space pervaded by chaos in which other small areas, where the elements get self-disposed and cooperate in the maintenance of an order, arise. This is the necessary condition for the development and manifestation of any form of life.

The works made of metal rods placed in vibration produce a musical instrument that has an independent life and relates to the balsa wood structures maintained in a forced equilibrium. A camera projects a sequence of images taken in recent years that represent the visual notes of the artist, such as videos taken at sea in Sicily, in Pozzallo. The research of Josè Angelino is here aimed at experimenting with different techniques united by a single common thread.

Born in 1977 in Ragusa, Jose Angelino lives and works in Rome. The artist recieves his BA in Physics from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a dissertation on “The codification of visual stimuli carried out by a neural network”. In 2013 he wins the Premio Scialoja for Visual Arts. In 2014 he’s selected for the show European Glass Experience, promoted by the Consorzio Promovetro Murano in collaboration with the Museo del Vetro of Murano and in 2016 he gets the “Arte Fiera 40” prize on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Bologna art fair.
