GianCarlo Montebello

“Almost all my projects are 'work in progress' because they make use of the rule of becoming something else starting from their own principle.”

Started his career along with Man Ray and Ugo Mulas, in ‘67 Montebello becomes editor of artist jewels with GEM (Delaunay, Fontana, Soto, etc). In parallel to the academic and curatorial activity, from the '80s he explores the endless combinations of materials and shapes of his famous Body Ornaments, which core is the relation with the body and the ready-made.
