I am a graphic designer / visual artist. I like to explore the interrelations between these two fields, as well as to experiment with different media and with the public space in a broad sense. I believe my role is to find the consequent match between the concept at the base of each project and its final outcome. By readjusting objects within a context I try to open up a field for a philosophical and political reflection, commenting on so-called normal life. In my creative process I draw inspiration from contemporary thinkers such as Giorgio Agamben and Paolo Virno. Also, I am fascinated by the etymology of words, as if they reveal an essential meaning the word has carried with itself for centuries.
In 2005 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in visual communication from ISIA in Florence (Italy) and Bauhaus University, in Weimar (Germany). In 2008 I gained my Master’s Degree at Sandberg institute of the Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam (the Netherlands). Between 2010 and 2013 I was granted three scholarships for residencies at JACA, Center for Contemporary Art in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), at BLUMEN, Leipziger Kunstverein, in Leipzig (Germany) and, at The Guesthouse, in Cork (Ireland).
Since 2007 I have been working as a freelance graphic and web designer with a particular focus on culture-related projects. Amongst the companies I have worked for are Slanted Magazine (Germany) and FRAME Publisher (Amsterdam, the Netherlands). Currently collaborating with Axel Feldman at Objectif, London.
Currently looking for residencies and collaborations.
