ALGORYTHM
Leonardo Mosso
Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò are authors of the critical text that introduces the wonderful solo exhibition by Leonardo Mosso at the Noire Gallery in Turin.
The exhibition, entitled “Algorythm”, presents 11 “structures-environment”.

The structures-environment that Mosso theorized and realized from the Sixties onwards, manifest themselves as gemmations of oriented segments, frames of slats that branch out variably to signal themselves through a concrete and abstract presence at the same time: bound one to the other by means of joints, these linear elements draw in the void weightless masses of filaments, geometric efflorescences characterized by a dense transparency, clouds of vectors.
