gaetano pesce david gill gallery, london october 4th to december 22nd, 2012

‘six tables on water’, is an exhibition of renowned italian designer gaetano pesce at david gill gallery in london,  each piece conjuring the surface, depth and density of six expanses of water – oceans, lagoons, rivers, lakes, ponds and puddles.  the limited edition table collection takes an imagined aerial views of each represented landscape, where they reflects on  features such as steps leading up from the venetian lagoon. pesce’s most recent work is forthright in his desire  to investigate contemporary materials used within experimental technologies which push the boundaries of production processes, through the exploration of the elasticity and sensuality of silicon, resin and foam. 

‘my materials are liquid,’ he says, ‘and fit with the nature of our time. to me beauty means being unique, to be different, –  I like beauty full of mistakes because we are human. perfection is for machines, it is obsolete, gone.’
