Micol Assaël, Formuška, 2009, installation Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel. Using electricity and water, the sculpture creates lightning and clouds of steam.
Micol Assaël (b.1979, Rome, Italy), lives in Rome and Greece.
 
Physical phenomena such as magnetism and electricity and the ways they are perceived physically as well as mentally are key elements in Micol Assaël’s art. Her installations, as radical as they are poetic, often place the viewer in a position of real or perceived danger. Solo exhibitions of her work have been organized by Kunsthalle Basel (2007), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2009), Secession (Vienna, 2009), Fridericianum (Kassel, 2009), MUSEION (Bolzano, 2010) and Hangar Bicocca (Milan, 2014). She took part in the Venice Biennale in 2003 and 2005 and the biennales of Moscow (2005), Berlin (2006) and Sydney (2008). The artist is represented by Johann Koenig (Berlin) and Galleria Zero (Milan).
 
Natuurlijke fenomenen als magnetisme en elektriciteit en de manieren waarop die psychisch en fysiek worden waargenomen,  zijn centrale elementen in het werk van Micol Assaël. Haar installaties, even radicaal als poëtisch, plaatsen de toeschouwer vaak in een positie van denkbeeldig of reëel gevaar. Solotentoonstellingen van haar werk vonden plaats in Kunsthalle Basel (2007), Palais de Tokyo (Parijs, 2009), Secession (Wenen, 2009), Fridericianum (Kassel, 2009),MUSEION (Bolzano, 2010) en Hangar Bicocca (Milaan, 2014). Zij nam deel aan de Biënnale van Venetië in 2003 en 2005 en aan de biënnales van Moskou (2005), Berlijn (2006) en Sydney (2008). De kunstenaar wordt vertegenwoordigd door Johann Koenig (Berlijn) en Galleria Zero (Milaan).
