Vittorio Bianchi’s work focuses primarily upon one element, which can be defined more than anything as a gesture, or that of laceration. The two-dimensional nature of the materials used by Bianchi is slavishly called into question by interventions that create absences and therefore open passages to other possible dimensions, underlining their fragility and at the same time the radical elegance and preciousness of what is torn. In fact, the fabrics used by the artist in his works highlight dedicated research ranging from Taiwanese silk to Italian lampas through monochromatic textures and elaborate prints. His artistic research therefore also extends to the study of multiculturalism with a strong reference to the historicity of the treated materials whose processing underlines the echo of the time.
