When Neil Young was asked by the audience to play a certain song during a concert, it didn’t take him a second to reply to hundreds of people: ”It’s all one song!” Everyone reading through the collected poems of Gottfried Benn, Nelly Sachs or Paul Celan quickly learns that each poem says the same in different words. And everyone who as once seen a work by Agostino Iacurci (born 1986) will always recognize others. At a young age, the Rome-based artist has successfully endowed his works with a synthetic-colourful imagery that may be recognized as easily as a song by Bad Religion. Art is always a vision, Iacurci claims. A vision by way of which he seeks to make walls sing.
