Attempts to quantify sensation

Albert Baronian is pleased to announce the third exhibition of Thomas Zipp, entitled Attempts to quantify sensation.
As an all-round artist who has been active on the large international stage of contemporary art for the past 15-odd years, Thomas Zipp never fails to amaze us. Zipp paints, draws, sculpts and invents almost “surrealist” machines. Using the most unusual creations taken straight from an age-old anthology, he created an event held at the Venetian Palazzo Rossini in 2013 with the amazing installation of a fictitious clinic entitled: “Comparative Investigation about the Disposition of the Width of a Circle” (1). The work makes reference to both Charcot’s research (on hysteria at the La Salpétrière hospital in Paris) and David Bowie’s song (taken from the album The Man Who Sold The World, 1970), which deals with his fight against drug addiction and the devil!
