Working mainly in sculpture, Davide Stucchi’s works involve minimal interventions in and subtle manipulations of existing materials to investigate the body, its social functions and representations. Stucchi’s installations follow directed movements and set ups, where objects follow traces and materialize absent bodies inscribed with private and intimate feelings and memories. The confrontation of exterior realms such as fashion or advertisement and domesticity, in Stucchi’s work, is often drawn upon to question and interfere in representations of queer masculinity, sexuality and intersecting class relationships.
