Pasquale Lagatta  cv
Pasquale Lagatta's work is a paradoxical mix of approaches. On the one hand his work are re-creations of superstar icons such as Elvis, Amy Winehouse and Marilyn who have by now become utterly familiar. But on the other, they are conjured up with a difference: be it that their outline is 'drawn' in a thin metal sculpture, or that they feature on a dictionary page which once 'lived' back in 1938. Billed on the site as 'Original and unique' they form an ironic commentary on the fame machine and its inexorable need for new 'editions' or versions and our need to idolise and make special those who excel or fill an emotional need in the public's heart.
