Rudi Punzo
[Rupz]
The Turin based artist Rudi Punzo is active in different disciplines such as sculpture, sound art, performance and music with a particular focus on the recycling of matters and shapes and the use of renewable sources: he questions Sculpture as a merely 3 D art, forcing the kinetic momentum into sound and timing.
Obsessed by the ‘sound of matter’ and ‘the matter of sound’ is interested in metamorphosis and its symbiotic relationship with artistic transformation - the transformative act of making art out of discarded, abandoned and cast-off refuse.
Similarly Punzo teases music out of his kinetic art works to produce magical sculptural/aural hybrids - wonderfully ever-changing, renewing and surprising.
