In Figurante, a powerful metal jaw crushes a femur bone over 3 hours. The work references the sterilized war images we see on TV, which never include the sound of people suffering. Sassolino's work focuses on industrial processes and materials. His objects and installations explore mechanical behaviors, materials and physical properties of force.
