BIOGRAPHY

SELECTED WORKS


Christian Fogarolli is an italian artist born in 1983. He obtained in 2010 the Master Inside the image: study, diagnosis and restoration of antique, modern and contemporary paintings at the University of Verona and graduated the following year in Management and Conservation of Cultural Heritage at the University of Trento. He showed his research into events as dOCUMENTA(13) with the exclusive presentation of the project Lost Identities (2012); The Magnificent Obsession at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rovereto, MART (2013); 54 Biennial of Venice (2011); Artissima at Lingotto of Torino (2013); Civic Gallery, Trento (2014); Le Mur at La Maison Rouge, Fondation Antoine de Galbert, Paris (2014). His works are in private and public collections as AGI Verona; Antoine de Galbert collection, Rotary Club International, dOCUMENTA's archive Kassel, Benetton Foundation.

The research of Christian Fogarolli is characterized by a strong interest in the nature of identity, particularly investigated through different perspectives, such as the archival research. He works with different media, such as environmental installations, photography, sculpture, video. The work shows connections with theories and scientific disciplines, that often and unconsciously, have used the art to progress and become science. The artworks can be contextualized within a study on image and object perception in relation to subjectivity, probing ties with the anormality and deviance. They pose questions about the abundance of heritage that we have and the use we offer them.
