Luigi Russo Papotto - Asphalt Rubber AR 2009
Luigi Russo Papotto will exhibit in Nanjing, China, inside the “Asphalt Rubber AR 2009 Conference”, his latest pieces of work based on the use of bitumen.
The International Asphalt Rubber Conference is at its 4th edition, and for the first time it takes place in an Asiatic country, the previous editions, falling every three years, took place in Portugal (AR 2000), Brazil (AR 2003) and the USA(AR 2006).
The themes considered in the other conferences focused on rubber, asphalt, bituminous ties, trampling performances, recycling and design.
“From natural outcrop to the Babel tower (example of using the material for the bonding of the bricks), from caulking to the asphalts (as useful conglomerates to pavement), the bitumen – writes Carmela Infarinato in a critical essay - followed the course of history and enters, rightly, in the mark of a society pursuing innovation, thought technological development, but claiming likewise the necessity to place itself beyond any structure with art.”
Luigi Russo Papotto was born in Linguaglossa, Catania, in 1955.
His artistic path starts in the 60s when he attends the sculpture class at Istituto Statale d’Arte of Catania and, at the same time, attends Domenico Tudisco’s workshop.
In the 70s he studies at the Accademia delle Belle Arti of Brera, at Minguzzi’s sculpture school and at the Accademia delle Belle Arti of Catania, the sculpture school of Eugenio Rosso and Rosario Frazzetto; then he moves to Pistoia and starts working in the prestigious Fonderia d’Arte “Michelucci”, where he meets many of the artists he will work with.
In the 80s he takes part in a number of projects of scenographic sculpture, together with, among many others, Arnaldo Pomodoro.
He has exhibitions in Italy, France, Spain and in the U.S. and his works are bought to be part in several private collections.
