THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS
Works by Claudio Destito
The End Justifies the Means – the title of the artwork that gives the name to the exhibition – like an overture encapsulates the thirty-years researching career and poetics by artist Claudio Destito.
Destito represents the materialisation of popular and common sayings, often custodians of hidden truth in the eyes of many, that used as titles (like The End Justifies the Means, Trojan Horse or Don’t Cry for Me Angelina..), rise from integral part to essential property and aesthetic potential of the artworks. Artist crosses the boundaries of the “conceptual” paying particular attention to the materials, continuing the “noble” metalinguistic research into an ironic interpretation.
