Arcangelo Sassolino adopts “conflict” as the core concept of his art. Contrasting industrial materials, mechanical or thermodynamic machinery capable of destroying them or modifying their status, and ideas related to limit, tension, unpredictability, fragility, danger, failure, and mortality are key to all of his works. Sassolino sees the sculpture as unplanned, independent action, one entirely freed from the artist’s choices: the focus shifts to the process that generates it, corresponding to a conflict between different materials, emotions, forces, and enthropy cycles. 

Published on the occasion of Sassolino’s solo exhibition Il vuoto senza misura (Atipografia Associazione Culturale, Arzignano, Vicenza), this book is a first attempt to examine his entire research by providing a chronology raisonné of his most important works over two decades of activities.
