LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Mirco Dal Barco was born in Monza on March 15th 1992.
He grew up in Paderno Dugnano near Milan. After accomplishing his scientific studies at the Milan high school, P. Bottoni, he enrolled at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. In the Academy he is curios about all the artistic forms and he is also affected immediately by the artisan weaving, especially from the loom; thus begins his project, still in progress, "fashion from waste", in which he deals with recycled materials from the fashion world with craft looms. At the same time he continues to increase his speculative work in the fields of art and sociology, which leads to the delineation of a philosophical vision of the artistic medium, from which, after single works of different nature, his first artistic series comes to life in 2019 from title: "WHO ARE YOU?". It is composed of a series of art videos, named: "What's your canvas?", which frames an installation and a sculpture that are the focus of the work. All the work is concentrated on themes, such as, perception of "real", social, concentration skills; focusing on everyday objects and actions, he question himself about them, involving the spectator in the reasoning. Involvement that continues outside the installation having linked a concept to an action that is repeated everyday.
Today he continues his research with more and more passion.
WHO I AM
I'm the result of what I've felt, experienced and most of all thought. My work is awareness.
