Daniel Turner at Pianissimo, Milano

Pianissimo gallery is pleased to announce Britannica, the first italian exhibition by American artist Daniel Turner. The current show will be made of several wall rubbings and one painting. Turners untitled wall rubbings will span throughout the ground floor space engaging both the consideration of presence and absence in a subtle yet unsettling manner. Made by the manual pressing of steel wool directly onto the gallery wall the rubbings create clouds of indexical markings producing lines of fine steel fibers amongst the gallery floor. This weathering away of material contrast and correlates with another work housed upon the second floor, Untitled 5250. Continuing to evoke an austere, almost ethereal calmness, such work has developed by encasing petroleum byproducts used to preserve wooden vessels against dry rot.
