Item description for Loris Cecchini: Monologue Patterns by Jerome Sans, Santiago Olmo & Loris Cecchini...
If Airstream made a treehouse, it might look something like the one Italian photographer and sculptor Loris Cecchini created. Metallic bands in a bullet shape separate transparent panels, elevated off the ground and wrapped around the trunk. Private and open, an emblem of childhood but with the sleek lines of adult technology, the structure packs in many of Cecchini's varied sculptural-architectural concerns, comprehensively captured here in some 135 color images. In his drooping casts of homey forms--lamps, ceiling fans, radiators, chairs--he treads the same ground as Rachel Whiteread, with the added punch in their pliability of the old, familiar, functional designs being played out, tired. Throughout this collection of his diverse oeuvre, Cecchini proves himself a unique thinker and idiosyncratic craftsman. Essays by Sergio Risaliti, Jerome Sans and Santiago B. Olmo. Paperback, 8.5 x 10.75 in./304 pgs / 135 color.
