Zero Built a Nest in My Navel

Zero Built a Nest in My Navel Ugo Rondinone - Zero Built a Nest in My Navel
Exhaustive monograph devoted to this Swiss artist, released on the occasion of his first solo exhibition in a British institution, recreates this work in all its richness, documenting certain pieces and most of his solo exhibitions over the last twenty years.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Whitechapel, London, in 2006.
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.
