The Night of Lead

The Night of Lead Ugo Rondinone - The Night of Lead
This exhaustive monograph recreates the Swiss artist's work in all its richness, documenting all pieces since 2005, organized by typologies.
Ugo Rondinone (*1963, Switzerland) has lived in New York for several years. Using photography, video, painting, drawing, sculpture, sound, and text by turns, Rondinone is a virtuoso of forms and techniques. Developing surprising sensorial environments, he especially likes destabilizing our perceptions and unsettling our certainties. Rearranging content and formal elements, a personal poetic with elements taken directly from the outside world, he draws us into a synesthetic experience.
