“Colombo conceived art as the place for an experience, which belongs to both the body and the mind, anticipating issues of perceptual and immersive researches and audience participation”

Colombo’s practice aimed at overcoming the traditional notion of art as an object to contemplate, in order to create work that requires the active involvement of the viewer. From his tactile pieces and works in motion of the late 1950s, to his immersive light installations of the 1960s, into his mature large-scale environments, he conceived art as the place for an experience, which belongs to both the body and the mind.

His investigation of space is led by this idea of changing the spectator’s conventional relationship with reality, both physically and psychically, encompassing also a broad dialogue with technology and architecture. Colombo’s space is a space experienced in a total way, anticipating issues of perceptual and immersive researches and audience participation that are still - important in the art of today.
