Giovanbattista Pastorelli, Italian artist, is one of the leading protagonists of Deconstructionism in art. This movement is tied to the general postmodern climate and mainly refers to the architecture domain. Deconstructivism, in fact, is the tendency to which a series of archistars belong, such as Frank O’Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Bernard Tschumi.
According to this movement, the normal constructive principle of architecture is demolished, so to speak, and then the designer reassembles them with great formal invention which is not far from the possible absolute freedom sculptors sometimes use.
A strong moment of Pastorelli’s deconstructivist research is his-re-proposal of the famous Riace bronzes. The Italian artist Giovanni Pastorelli put up an eclectic poetics based on multimedia and multi-materialism, together with a very lively and rich palette. Brahim Alaoui, Marco Meneguzzo, Pierre Restany, Carmelo Strano are among the international critics who wrote about Pastorelli’s work.
