Positioning itself between drawing, sculpture and writing, the work of Gianandrea Poletta is defined by the artist's own life experiences. In his first artist's book TABOO, published by Cura.books, a selection of short stories written in the first person, lo-fi cell phone pictures, and a rich array of ink and marker pen drawings, are brought together in a sequence that overlaps mediums and temporalities. For Poletta experience underlies and triggers his entire production process, from his chronicle writings from the underground of Milan to his livid gestural drawings depicting ambiguous figures. The artist is not afraid of telling the truth and TABOO is as much a 'bildungsroman' or coming of age book as it is an exercise in anarchy and freedom.

Book published on the occasion of the Menabrea Art Prize 2016, 6th edition.
