Casino at Hangar Bicocca, Milan, is the first solo exhibition in Italy by Damián Ortega, who for the past 20 years has been one of the most interesting artists on the contemporary scene. His work explores the idea of sculpture through the use of everyday objects, subverting their meaning. Ortega alters and deconstructs objects, building structures that create a dialogue between matter and form, action and thought.
