  • About the artwork

    Actuellement présentée dans le cadre de l’exposition « ... the human hand can actually bloom. » à la Galerie Laurent Godin et jusqu’au 2 Juin 2018, la création de Scoli Acosta est née d’un séjour de l’artiste à Monte Verità en Août 2016.

    Monte Verità (littéralement la « colline de la Vérité ») est située sur le territoire d’Ascona, dans le canton du Tessin en Suisse. Depuis la fin du XIXe siècle, elle a été le berceau de communautés utopiques, un lieu d’expérimentation de nouveaux modes de vie, puis le théâtre de nombreux événements culturels. Des écrivains (Herman Hesse), des peintres (Kandinsky, Picabia), des musiciens et des danseuses (Isadora Duncan, Mary Wigman) y résident. On y célèbre l’union du corps et de l’esprit ainsi que l’utopie de l’art total.
    Oubliée pendant plusieurs années, c’est l’échange interdisciplinaire et l’impressionnant éclectisme de Monte Verita qui séduit Scoli Acosta.

    Concernant sa démarche, il nous livre : « J’essaie de me tenir à une « esthétique des Ressources » en d’autres termes, le recyclage, la régénération et la réadaptation d’objets trouvés. Cette approche repose sur la nécessité de récupérer, réutiliser et réintégrer pour le bien de la planète et pour mettre en lumière la poétique du quotidien. »

Scoli Acosta

Born in: 1973


Emergent Artist

Translation in progress

Scoli Acosta was born in 1973 in Los Angeles where he lives and works.
Awarded the Perrier-Jouët Prize for Best Artist at Zoo Art Fair in 2008, he has studied fine art at the Kansas City Art Institute (1994) and the Ultimate Akademie in Köln, Germany (1997).
« Moving beyond the "specific object" - to use Donald Judd's term - of the 1960s, which were neither paintings nor sculptures, but something in between, Acosta's tambourines are at once paintings and functional objects, diverting the legacy of modernist painting to the realm of the everyday, the hand-held, and the percussive. (…)
Acosta is part of a lineage of artists who embrace the found object, from the Surrealists to later funk and assemblage artists of the 1960s, but his practice emphasizes recycling and reclamation, actions born of the pressures and necessities of our contemporary moment.
Working with a range of mediums--painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, and performance, all of which may be incorporated into elaborate installations--Acosta's work is characterized by what he has described as "aesthetics of resourcefulness." The artist favours humble materials, economic gestures, and transparency with respect to his craft.
His installations emerge as poetic constellations that reveal traces of his research and production processes, as well as his movement through various landscapes. »
