Run-up collects the work developed by Grasso magazine throughout its first five issues, from 2016 to date. Juxtaposing the rhythmic sequence of a pole vault with excerpts from the magazine’s archive, this large-format publication aims to present the challenging visual research carried out by Grasso and to acknowledge exercise as a chance to reach higher by relying only on the possibilities of one’s body.
Grasso is a project by Giuseppe Gabellone and Diego Perrone, a review where everything fits into a three-by-two-meter space. Six square meters of ideas, images, and stories that two artists have chosen to print on a surface that requires a commitment, an effort, to be seen and understood: to stretch out on it, to hang onto it, to climb on it. Grasso is nature, life, shelter, and freedom. It’s not cynicism, it’s whimsy.
