Davide Mancini Zanchi has a nonchalant and mocking approach that dissolves objects and materials. His artistic career began in 2010 with a series of video performances in which body is related with everyday life and living space. His investigation is mainly articulated around the relationship between object and painting understood as the physical plane of action and scenarios production.

In sports BOX is the place where technology and strategy are developed. It is a nomadic place, which tracks the racing calendar, and it is the place where the performance is recorded and analyzed in all varieties. It is the place of the obsessive control of each element, nothing is left to chance, everything is designed to the result.

Choosing BOX as the exhibition title and implementing thin space change strategies, Davide Mancini Zanchi invites the viewer to enter a place that cancels the gallery. The materials used for this exhibition derives from scientific research applied to the artist’s own technology which is used in the painter’s atelier from the Renaissance to the present days: the frame on which the canvas tents.

Davide Mancini Zanchi thinks that employ scientific and technological new results to the artist’s making process means undertake a way that asks which are methods and standards to be implemented to achieve a particular result in arts. BOX is therefore the basic question about the result itself that the artist poses with his proceeding.
