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 use performance, and its only apparent contradictory expansion into other media, to investigate such condition.
My work seeks for balance between rigour and openness, research and sensitivity, coherence and contradiction, and it revolves around the notion of ‘the almost unnoticed’, which is an idea I developed as an alternative to the Western dominating shock culture. The artwork could easily be ignored, although never hides itself, and therefore requires the receiver to meet it half-way.
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 are investigated in my work. My art is, in this sense, is 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.
From the summer of 2017 I have also been working at Google shaping the personality of their Artificial Intelligence.
