Colombo Gianni

First works of painting, sculpture and ceramics.

From 1956 to 1959
He studied at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, attending painting courses held by Achille Funi and Pompeo Borra, and worked first in a studio, in Montegrappa street in Milan, with Davide Boriani and Gabrile Devecchi, then in an adjacent to his Joe (famous international designer). In these years he regularly exhibited ceramic works at the Faenza Ceramic National Competition and at the Gubbio National Ceramic Exhibition. He also debuts with abstract works, experimenting with different materials and languages, from ceramics to graphics, from photography to cinema, creating, by influence of the lesson of Lucio Fontana, polymateric works and monochrome reliefs in wadding, which in 1959 exhibited at the Azimut gallery in Milan , the gallery to which he collaborates with Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani, Giovanni Anceschi, Davide Boriani and Gabriele Devecchi. Also in that year, in Milan, Gianni Colombo founded with Giovanni Anceschi, Davide Boriani and Gabriele Devecchi the T Group (which will include Grazia Varisco from the following year), whose collective and personal performances will be titled Miriorama (many images) progressively numbered to emphasize the continuity of a common program that orientates for several years for the work of the group, recovering themes of historical avant-gardes (in particular futurists, dadaists and constructivists), reworked in the light of experimentation and artistic research more recent: Lucio Fontana's Spatialism and its Environments, the Unnecessary Machines of Munari and Tinguely, the Manzoni’s Lines and Achromes. The aim of the group is to abolish any static frontier between painting, sculpture and architecture.

It is the year when the first collective exhibition, Miriorama, dates back to the year, which includes works deliberately not signed by artists, aimed at studying space-time themes in the work of art. In this exhibition already find the characteristic traits on which is based all the search for Gianni Colombo, that is space with the invasion of the environment, the time intended as movement, becoming, and the provocation of a physical-psychic reaction in the spectator through astonishment. The work no longer has a unique, fixed image: the repetition of the movement is avoided by the introduction of a random component, which will be determined by the direct intervention of the spectator in subsequent realizations. In the following months, there are still four other Miriorama events dedicated to the individual members of the group at Galleria Pater in Milan. On February 9, 1960, with Miriorama 4, the first solo show of Gianni Colombo was exhibited, featuring his first cinematic works: Variant Surfaces and Intermediate Relays, whose novelty is represented by the direct intervention of the spectator for be activated, and the first homogeneous distribution surfaces with rhythmic movements with electromechanical animation (Button Structuring), which emphasize the interest in architectural space and its primary constructive elements. Being the heir to the fontanian indication of going beyond the surface, passing through it, Gianni Colombo does not consider the surface of the work as a place of abstract-contemplative mime. What matters to him is the direct relationship with the spectator, which becomes an active part of the work, subject and not object to artistic representation. The group's collective exhibitions continue with the subsequent editions of Miriorama, where artists experiment mechanically working objects, such as Rotoplastik, exhibited by Colombo in Miriorama 8 in December, 1960. The will to overcome the traditional concept of art brings Gianni Colombo to experiment new perceptual structures through light games, performing works by plexiglass (chrome-chrome structures), light projections on vibration-shaped mirrors (Sismostrutture), apparent virtual shapes and movements with fast moving structures ( Roto-optic acentric structure), posthumous images produced by rhythmic flashes through rotating perforated screens (After-Structures, After-Points).

Starting from this year he studies subsequent relationships between geometric shapes (programmed graphics boards) and begins production of Rotoplastick and Fluid Structure using industrial techniques. The multiple object is designed to be manufactured with industrial techniques, in a number of potentially unlimited copies, starting from a prototype of exclusively design value. There is therefore no original to reproduce, but a series of identical objects with all the same value, the same character of authenticity and originality. In the same year, members of the T Group participate individually in the organization of the Arte programmata exhibition, an itinerant show organized by Bruno Munari and presented between 1962 and 1965 at the Olivetti Stores in Milan, Rome, Venice, then In galleries and museums in London, Japan, Germany and various cities in the United States.

The members of the Group T participate, still individually, in the organization of the international movement Nouvelle Tendance and in the subsequent exhibitions of the movement. In 1963, Gianni Colombo is invited, with all the cinematic-programmed artists, to the IV San Marino Biennale, “Oltre l’informale”

For the project of the Acrylic Lamp, designed in 1962 for O-Luce, Gianni Colombo gets together with his brother Joe the Gold Medal for Design at the XIII Triennale of Milan. With his brother he also collaborates in the realization of some fixtures, including Eurodomus 1 in Genoa. At the XIV International Congress of Artists and Art Critics in Rimini, Gianni Colombo receives the gold medal. In 1964, Gianni Colombo participated in the last group exhibition of Group T, Miriorama 14, at Studio F of Ulm. From this moment on, the aesthetic field of action privileged by Gianni Colombo becomes the environmental space, designed as a place of active solicitation of perceptual, sensory and behavioral events that directly involve viewers. Colombo creates habitable environments that, progressively, from neutral and "abstract" spaces (where the public is immersed in kinetic events of bright nature), increasingly become spaces linked to architectural design, with the intention of rethinking spectator the concept of space, altering the perception of the environment, almost to emphasize the fragility of the dictates of habit. In 1964, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the Louvre, at the Nouvelle Tendance exhibition, in 1964, Gianni Colombo realized his first habitable environment, “Strutturazione cinevisuale abitabile”. The artist also has the task of creating a 25-square-foot Pulsating Surface for the entrance of the show. Through such a large-scale work, along with the simultaneous kinetic actions of the surface, the active movement of the spectator necessarily triggers, not only the look (no longer linked to a particular attention center) but also the whole person who it is moved to move back and forth, right and left, to try to grasp the overall sense of the polyphonic rhythmic phenomena that enliven the entire field extension.

In Zagreb, Gianni Colombo takes part in the third edition of Nova tendencija. For the occasion, he creates Topoesthesia-Experimental Environment in contiguous areas, an environment involving the behaves of the spectator, his posture reflexes (synesthesia, bariatric disorder, topoesthesia). With a cinematic structure that is habitable before (1964), and with Environmental Design then (1965), there is no relation to the work unless it is placed inside. Also in 1965, Gianni Colombo participated at Nul '65 at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and started contacts with the artists of the Zero Group in Düsseldorf. He was also invited to the Licht und Bewegung exhibition at the Kunsthalle in Bern.

At the Gallery of the Obelisk of Rome, Gianni Colombo presents After Structures (designed in 1964) and After Points: posthumous images produced in the flash retina of primary and compound colors, timed, placed behind rotating perforated screens. He also exhibits at Kunst-Licht-Kunst at the Stedelijk Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven.

It is the year of the official consecration in Italy and Europe of the theme of "space environment". In Graz (Trigon '67) there is an exhibition of environments, while in Foligno there is an exhibition that is perhaps among the most celebrated at this time, “Lo Spazio dell’immagine”, in which together with Gabriele Devecchi designs “Ambiente a strutturazione virtuale”. In 1967, he also presents for the first time the Elastic Space environment, designed in 1966 and made for Trigon '67 in Graz. Elastic Space is the best-known environment among those made by Colombo, representing the highest outcome of the phase Cinevisuale: it is a palpitating environment, involving the spectator with imaginative paths that are perceived differently from person to person. At the XXXVI Venice Biennale in 1968, the Elastic Space environment won the First Prize for Painting. The same work is presented at Documenta 4 in Kassel, along with Topoesthesia-Three contiguous zones (1965).

Starting from this period, Gianni Colombo deepens the studies on the switching of patterns obtained with electronic generators, displayed on television kinescope and driven by voblers: Vobular signals (videotape). He attends the Konstruktive Kunst exhibition at the Kunsthalle in Nuremberg. He also realized the Zoom Squares environment, presenting at the Art actuel en Italie exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels and in Belgrade.

He collaborates with Vincenzo Agnetti, with whom he realizes the environment Campo pratica at the Studio Marconi in Milan. In Montepulciano, for the exhibition Amore Mio, he realizes the Ingombri Estetici. Also in 1970, Gianni Colombo participated in the Vitality of the Negative exhibition in Rome, where he created a new variant of the contiguous Topoesthesia Zone. At the gallery La Città di Verona presents the environmental work Zoom Squares - Cromo(crono)dromo. At the Civic Museum of Bologna, on the occasion of the exhibition Behaviors, Projects, Mediations, curated by T. Trini and R. Barilli, exhibits the videobooks vobulati Signals, 1969.

Gianni Colombo presents, in the vast space of the Telemuseum, curated by Tommaso Trini in the premises of the Triennale of Milan, for Eurodomus 3, the negative Vobulation and Bioeloquence video, realized in collaboration with Vincenzo Agnetti: this is a nine minute song produced electronically on magnetic tape for videotapes. Colombo visually reproduces a geometric figure, while Agnetti uses the "neg" instrument designed to obtain the negative sound (to perceive or fixed note in place of silence, or silence replacing voice).

Colombo holds a personal show at the Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum in Graz. The following year, Gianni Colombo holds a new solo show at the Palace of Diamonds in Ferrara, presented by G. C. Argan. Along with Livio Castiglioni directs the film for Total Furnishing Unit, a work presented by his brother Joe at the exhibition "Italy-The New Domestic Landscape” at the Museum of Modem Art in New York.

He is invited to be part of the commissioning committee for the section “La ricerca estetica” at the X Quadriennale of Rome.

He designs and realizes the Bariestesia environment, presented at Studio Marconi in Milan. In the same year, the project for the 220 Volt environment was developed, based on intermittent brightness contrasts emitted by form diffusers and different materials. The work is presented at the personal exhibition at the Städtishes Museum in Leverkusen. In Bariesthesia and Topoesthesia, Gianni Colombo stimulates paradoxical environmental practices through paths of steps and deformed thresholds. Starting from daily gestures, such as climbing the stairs, he experience new balances to change the feelings of the spectator, striking it through the creation of sinesthetic sites, interaction fields between the various sensory organs. The will is to disturb the perceptive passivity of places, from gallery to museum, from house to palace, showing the inertia of their use.

Gianni Colombo exhibits in Europe-America - Astrazione Determinata (Bologna, Municipal Gallery of Modern Art) and the Venice and Sydney Biennals. He also has personal exhibitions at the Kunsthalle in Baden-Baden and in Kiel.

He chooses to "get" literally "in place of" Buster Keaton in the movie A week (1920), reflecting on the distortion of the house, on the alteration of the building: this frame is published at the exhibition catalog at the Stedelijk Van Abbe Museum Of Eindhoven in 1981, expressing the subtle disagreement that, as an artist, Colombo was warning about the architect's concrete design.

Gianni Colombo creates the Topoesthesia-Pilastri environment, which presents at the exhibition “I nodi della rappresentazione” in Ravenna. Also in this year, Colombo is commissioned by the city of Como to design a monumental complex dedicated to the theme of European Resistance: it will take six years to complete this work.

In collaboration with Emilio Tadini and Gianfranco Pardi, Gianni Colombo designs Borgotondo, a children's playground built in Mirandola. In the same year he was appointed professor of "Structuring the Space" at the New Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, which since 1985 also assumed leadership.

For the Pier + Ocean exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, Gianni Colombo is implementing Entrexit (Threshold), an application of Topoesthesia. In the early 1980s he began working in a series of environments entitled Architectures, cacogoniometric-archi, which he presented in the solo show at the Stedelijk Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven (1981) and at the Italian Art Exhibition from 1960 to 1982 at the Hayward Gallery in London (1982).

Wins the Kunst am Bau competition in Berlin for the construction of a monumental building in the city (a project that will not be executed). In the same year he finalized the Luce / Ombre environmental work, presented at Studio Grossetti in Milan. He also makes sets for the film Adry Boon Plus Echo, shot in the Netherlands.

He holds a personal exhibition at the Pavilion of Contemporary Art in Milan where he presents the cacogoniometric-column architecture. The same environment is re-presented at the Venice Biennale.

Create scenarios for Stephen Climax by H. Zender at the Frankfurt Open Air Theater.

He started collaborating with FIAM, on behalf of whom he made some installations at the Galleria Schubert in Milan, Intemationale Mobelmesse in Cologne (1989) and the Show Room Gherardini in Milan (1992).

Gianni Colombo does the Catastrophe, deforming classic architectural elements through the screen of a computer.

Gianni Colombo realizes the environment “Spazio curvo”, built with plastic tubes and electric motors, presented at the Villa Borzino Installation Show at Busalla (Genoa) and, the following year, at the Turchetto / Plurima Gallery in Milan.

Gianni Colombo is invited to the traveling exhibition The other sculpture (curated by Renato Barilli) that is held in Madrid, Barcelona and Darmstadt.

In the impressive space of Galerie Hoffmann in Friedberg, he presents his latest environmental work, Diagonometric Space, made with large photo paper cones, about three meters high powered by electric motors.
On February 3, 1993, Gianni Colombo suddenly died at the Melzo Hospital.
