Elastic Gallery is proud to present Andreas Mangione's first exhibition with the gallery entitled 'Ossobuco'. The show will mark the inauguration of the gallery's new space at Tulegatan 19 in Stockholm.

Ossobuco, meaning ’hollow bone’, is Andreas Mangione’s first solo exhibition at Elastic Gallery. His work is driven by a consistent curiosity. Small pieces of wood and rocks are collected during walks in suburban Stockholm, becoming part of a larger narrative, where details from everyday life are put against a background of historicity through sculpture and drawing.

For his show, Mangione builds a maze-like experience using sculptural forms mimicking a deconstructed Roman sarcophagus. These sculptural containers are used as framework for the small-scale objects and drawings, which are spread out on shelves and platforms in the gallery space. The exhibition is turned into a type of tomb, where life used to reign.

Mangione refers to a notion from ancient Greece where it was said that text, or written language, is a dead version of the spoken voice. This is reenacted through the combination of found and made objects, paired off with a multitude of drawings: seemingly small and made in the heat of the moment. Their pictorial language, adds emotion to the hollowness of the ordinary, begging the viewer to stop and look beyond.

Andreas Mangione (b.1974, Lund, Sweden) graduated from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm in 2005. Exhibitions include: Dieselverkstaden, Stockholm, together with Henrik Eriksson and Clara Gesang-Gottowt (2015), the sound is gone but not forgotten, Signal, Malmö, Sweden (2014), Lucifer Light Study, OEI Colour Project Färgkontoret, Stockholm (2013), Biennale of Young Artists, under curator Rael Artel, Tallin, Estonia (2007), P.A.N.K, Marabouparken, Stockholm, Sweden (2006), to name a few.

Mangione is the editor, together with Fredrik Liew for a publication about Paul Klee and Ivan Aguéli coming out in January 2016 in conjunction with an exhibition at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
