Michele Lombardelli (Cremona 1968) presents a series of large paintings in his solo show at the A+B gallery. This new series of works connect the western and eastern reductionist traditions in a way that is never completely investigated.

Dark and elusive geometrical shapes are painted on the canvas. This is the artist’s first experience with large paintings and it represents a turning point in his conceptual and technical research. Lombardelli is an out-of-the-box artist.


During his career he tried a lot of different techniques : painting, drawing, sculpture, installations and graphics. Using the pseudonym “Untitled Noise” he also experimented a lot with music. Even though he has various resources, he always refers to Samuel Beckett’s  issues, such as: disintegration of the self and incommunicability. “Lessness” is the best world to describe his subtractive attitude and deconstructive approach to reality. The exhibition is a kind of accomplishment of these topics.

Here, in the building where Georges Bizet wrote his masterpiece Carmen in 1875, Matt Copson premieres a bildungsroman opera in three laser-projected parts: Age of Coming, Coming of Age and Of Coming Age. His opera tells the story of a baby at odds with a vengeful god, who tries to convince him that life is miserable and cruel, and nothing more. On view High Art, Paris
