LONDON.- An installation of dynamic and powerful images by Alberto Di Fabio uniting the worlds of art and science will be on view from 13 February to 7 April 2013. Organised in collaboration with Gagosian Gallery, Di Fabio’s Intervention, curated by Pier Paolo Pancotto, constitutes a response to the Estorick’s permanent collection and will be displayed in striking arrangements over the building’s stairwell windows.

Di Fabio’s work has consistently investigated the natural world, the physical phenomena that govern it, and macro- and microcosms, through a painterly style incorporating both abstract and realistic elements as well as optical/kinetic and spiritual dimensions. This approach, which he has developed since the 1980s, has met with great success on the exhibition circuit and has received support and recognition internationally from critics and collectors alike.

For this exhibition at the Estorick Collection, the artist has created a specific project conceived in relation to the areas connecting the various levels of the museum, in such a way that the works will be grouped together to form vertical structures, endowing them with an innovative dramatic impact. At the same time, it presents a selection of works that not only reflect Di Fabio’s career over the last twenty years, but which also engages in an imaginary dialogue with the masterpieces of Italian art from the 20th century owned by the museum.

Alberto Di Fabio (b. Avezzano, 1966) studied in Rome and Urbino and completed his training through collaborations with Cy Twombly, Alighiero Boetti and Donald Baechler. His painting is divided into various phases beginning with the cycle of Mountains in the 1980s and continuing to that of the Subatomic World images of the 1990s and the early years of the 21st century. He has exhibited tirelessly since the late 1980s, with solo shows at the Kunstverein, Bregenz (1997); Umberto Di Marino, Naples (2004, 2007, 2011); Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills (2004), London (2002, 2007), New York (2010), Athens (2011); Pack, Milan (2005, 2007, 2010) and the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Rome (2012). Di Fabio’s work has also been featured in numerous collective shows, including The Return of the Exquisite Corpse, The Drawing Center Museum, New York (1993); Napoli Presente, Pan, Naples (2005); Dublin Contemporary, National Gallery, Dublin (2011) and several editions of the Rome Quadriennale (1996, 2003, 2008). He lives and works between Rome and New York.
