Giancarlo Marcali

Giancarlo Marcali develops his artistic research into a research path of the painful moment. How many types of pain lacerate the human being? Infinite, as the soul’s abyss. But all leave a trace of their passage, a scar, visible or not. In spite of our differences, Giancarlo unites us all in virtue of our common essence, for the matter of which we are made of light, reminding us that despite long distances we have a common origin and that the pain of everyone has the right to be expressed. Born in Switzerland in 1963. He graduated at New South Wales University in Sydney in aboriginal arts and cultures of the south pacific Islands. From 1990 to 1995 has collaborated with Martino Vertova to the creation of stained glass art. From 1995 to 2000 he opens in Milan “Space Low Tech” to promote his work and the one of other young artists and designers. From 2003 to 2008 he worked with contemporary art gallery Emi Fontana in Milan. From 2009 to 2010 works to the project “We are all prophets” and his quest for his identity leads him to the realization of the installation “The memory of pain”, then exposed to his solo exhibition in Treviso, and Gaeta in the group exhibition “Scorporo”, and later in Turin and Sansepolcro. Since 2011 Giancarlo has exhibited his installations in many private art galleries in Milan, Rome, Naples, Venice and Berlin. Worthy of note, in December 2012, the collective exhibition at the Civic Museum of Sansepolcro where his work communicates with the “Resurrection” by Piero della Francesca and the personal exhibition in Arezzo “Anime di calce” where for the first time presents its new installation “Ri (e) volution”. In September 2013 he won the Biennial of Contemporary Art of Anzio and Nettuno with his installation “doppelgaenger, Progress” and presents his solo show “The body and pain through the ages” to Marsiglione Arts Gallery in Como where all his work communicates with a historical work of the ‘400 to the Italian futurism. In 2014, as well as numerous group exhibitions, on the occasion of the retrospective organized by the Museum Vignoli in Seregno he develops two large-scale installations: “Oobe_tanz of resurrection” and “Et nos cedamus AMORI” finally participating in Fotofever Paris. In 2015 follows the exhibition for the Expo ” Cibi condimentum esse famem” at Sabrina Raffaghello Gallery in Milan and the important collective “Segrete, memory traces” at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa curated by Virginia Monteverde and The Biennal LE LATITUDINI DELL’ARTE at Palazzo Ducale in Genova, in 2016 the exibition at 126 art gallery in Galway connetcs him to his future project that he will develop far more than 1 year. “Searching for my Sheela” appears in november 2017 at Palazzo Ducale in Genova, temple of contemporart art, and is going to start a tour next year in Mantova and Milan and in the meantime partecipates at the Biennal in Budapest.
