Agostino Ferrari is an Italian artist, who commenced his career as an artist in 1959. The guiding thread of his works till today is ‘the sign’. From 1983 to the present day his treatment of the sign has centered on the Events, in which the sign is completely free of superstructures and is realized in its totality. Yet the sign is not just the equivalent of writing, it is a sign-symbol, an emblem, created out of sand as it is a material of great "tactile theatricality."
