"Sassolino’s work focuses on industrial processes and materials. His objects and installations explore mechanical behaviors, materials and physical properties of force. Each work takes careful planning and research and results in constructions that are stunning both in terms of their sheer physicality (material density, mechanical precision) and the forces (gravity, pressure, friction) which are applied by or to the object."

Police have seized a painting of Russia’s president and prime minister in women’s underwear from a gallery in St Petersburg, saying the satirical display broke unspecified laws. The painting shows President Vladimir Putin wearing a tight-fitting slip and brushing the hair of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who is wearing knickers and a bra.
