In anticipation of his upcoming solo show at Wunderkammern in Rome, Italian artist Agostino Iacurci recently completed the mural “Zero Infinito” on the facade of a school near the gallery. A depiction of two anonymous protagonists climbing a ladder that loops into infinity, the mural evokes the central theme of Iacurci’s upcoming show, “Small Wheel, Big Wheel.” According to the artist, the show explores the act of playing. Iacurci’s new work is simplified and geometric. The personalities of his portly, masculine figures are most likely different in the eyes of every viewer, with only abstract shapes and a minimal color palette to convey the mood of each piece. “Small Wheel, Big Wheel” opens February 8 and will be on view through March 22.
