Alessandro Carboni

  • Alessandro Carboni creates humorous sculptures by combining objects with seemingly human or animal legs.    Growing legs is intended as a sort of new evolutionary step in the life of the objects in the same way as the first sea creatures were able to move on land when they grew legs for the first time three hundred and seventy-five million years ago. With the addition of newly grown legs, objects are now able to move independently and come back to us in a new form.


    The choice of objects used to create these hybrids reflects the artist’s interest in investigating the way we interact with each other and with the environment we live in. Mass-production, exploitation and colonialism are some or the topics that the sculptures are meant to debate.    Based in London, Alessandro graduated with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art from Middlesex University and an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins. He has exhibited internationally and his pieces are part of private collections in London, Milan and Athens.
