I have the impression that time is moving at three different speeds, a real-life version of a parallax website. On one layer it has a linear, or rather incremental, sense of progression. On another, it’s still subject to the idea of circularity, and ever remixed loops come and go. On the third, time is not experienced as a continuum anymore and is conversely fragmented into “moments”: one fleeting life highlight after the other.
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 dominating 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 central to 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.
