Antonio Riello is one of Italy’s most eclectic, visionary and controversial artists, working in techniques as varied as painting, sculpture, design, photography, installation and video-games. Incorporating the ironic manner of a conceptual charade, Riello manipulates and almost mistreats the images and objects which he invents.

A new art project of Antonio Riello is going on:
"I CAN NOT MAKE HEADS OR TAILS OF IT"
It changes the usual direction one is used to give to the shape of animals and objects. A couple of identical objects are halved along the transversal (aka axial) plane and after reassembled in a perfect manner but using the “wrong” pieces. The front and the rear come up in the wrong (or ambiguously in a “too-right”) position. Heads cope with heads, tails with tails. What should move forward can not do it because of a generous excess of towardness. On the other side the rears push strongly against each other compressing the body in an interesting and outlandish way.
