LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Swift technological advancement, a revived modern influence and the recent postmodern experience, created the basis for a new cultural condition yet to be defined. I take advantage of the transiency of performance, and its only apparent contradictory expansion into less elitist media (such as video and installation), to investigate such condition. My work seeks for balance between rigour and openness, research and sensitivity, coherence and contradiction, while its aesthetics revolve around the notion of ‘the almost unnoticed’, which I developed as an alternative to the Western shock culture. The impact of technology, the development of digital self-identity, the ease of content (re)appropriation and (re)signification, the consequences of irony and relativism, the expression and propagations of feelings, and even the perception of time itself are investigated with my work. My art is, in this sense, hyper contemporary. That is to be dedicated to the understanding and involved into the shaping of the cultural shift we are currently facing.
Born in Milan in 1983, I currently live and work in London where in 2017 I completed my MA at the Royal College of Art.
Shortlisted for the 2017 Almacantar prize.
