Marco Gobbi

Marco Gobbi (b. 1985, IT) studied Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and since 2008 has been working with sculpture and installation. In 2013 he was a resident at the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa with the collective ‘How We Dwell (Make your own Residency)’. In 2015/16 he was a resident at Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht.

His practice evinces his interest in the analysis of stories and objects, and the gaps found in those stories; the work, then, is used as a mean to fill those gaps. Through the uncovering of the balance between the components of an artwork, a more subjective vision of translation and sensation in poetic forms is proposed. The artist sees objects as potential maps, whose legends contain new and unexplored directions and possibilities.
