The Unsettling Scuptures Of Alessandro Boezio

On the 500th anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch’s death, Milan-based artist Alessandro Boezio pays homage to the Dutch master through a series of surreal sculptures.

Exploring the intriguing interplay between reality and illusion, Boezio refers to the motifs of Bosch’s paintings, in particular ‘Triptych of the Temptation of St. Anthony’. Inspired by characters who try to refuse – or not – physical temptations, Boezio created a series of provoking sculptures in various anatomical formations. With some of them referring to the position during the prayer, and the others suggesting alluding to sexual positions, Boezio’s works teeter between the themes of spirituality and temptation.
