(b. 1983, IT)
His work unmasks the process of making sense, focusing upon the tension between and the overlapping of ordering and generating forces. In his installations, imaginative but usable objects trigger dense and layered stories in which the product’s design is corrupted, kneading consumer and fruition logics with a new form of witchcraft based on contemporary rituals, myths and symbols. Andrea has exhibited and performed in public and private spaces, included: PAV Parco Arte Vivente – Centro sperimentale d’arte contemporanea, Giorgio Galotti, Archivio di Stato (Turin), T293 (Rome), MAMbo – Museum of Modern Art (Bologne), Marsèlleria (New York), Italienska Kulturinstitutet (Stockholm), Operativa (Rome), Stanford Housing (London), Can Serrat (Barcelona), Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), Marsèlleria, O’, Viafarini, Crepaccio, Mars (Milan), Pad.
