In Alice Ronchi’s sculptures and installations, everyday objects meet the world of invention and fantasy. The search for “wonder” is a constant theme in the art of Alice Ronchi, populated by familiar yet enigmatic figures, product of the re-elaboration in an abstract key of everyday objects. Halfway between playful and minimalist, Alice Ronchi’s work is always a perfect synthesis of formal simplicity and geometrical precision. Through the use of different media, ranging from sculpture to photography, from performance to video, Alice Ronchi questions the world with a curious gaze and returns it to us as if it were a magic place, with the ability that artists have always had of looking at the world with different eyes.
