More information about this artwork

The Argentine-Italian painter Lucio Fontana was the founder of a radical new art form, known as Spatialism, which sought to break the two-dimensionality of the traditional picture plane. Through his Concetto Spaziale series, consisting in producing holes and vertical incisions on the surface of monochromatic paintings and sculptures, the artist unveiled a hidden fourth dimension beyond the frame and surface.

In Concetto Spaziale, Natura, Fontana presents two oval-shaped spheres of terracotta clay, casted in shiny and reflective bronze, with a gash across their surface. The violently punctured sculptures, bearing traces of the forceful manipulation along the edges, open a new spatial and conceptual level, breaking the wall between the internal and the external and challenging the viewer’s relation to dimensionality. This piece is one of the most emblematic and captivating works of the artist. Lucio Fontana’s body of work is regarded as a powerful precedent, retrospectively considered the first European artist to successfully promote art as a performance.
