Often linked with titans of the postwar era, such as Alexander Calder, Lucio Fontana and Alberto Giacometti, Fausto Melotti moved freely among mediums, incorporating plaster, ceramics, metal and fabric into his work. His delicate sculptures often exploited flexible metals - brass, copper and bronze - with fragments of coarse cloth or shimmering gauze, to create structures imbued with an ethereal beauty and inflected with Surrealist mystery. Behind the seemingly blithe and intuitive character of Melottis sculptures, however, resides a deep conception of art as a rigorous exercise in order and harmony, based on firm principles of geometry and musical structure. This is the first time that the artists work is being shown at Hauser & Wirth Zürich
