Massimo Grimaldi

Taranto, 1974. Lives in Milan

Using installations and text, lightboxes, prints, and performance, Grimaldi observes how image-building dynamics help to generate meaning in contemporary society. The artist takes the tension between realism and abstraction, form and content, to extreme levels, creating enigmatic and elusive images able to evoke both the political and sentimental arenas. The human figure does not feature heavily in Grimaldi’s work, but where it is present it is portrayed in a (mass)mediatized form: filtered through vision mechanisms and strictly two-dimensional, forcing the spectator to question issues of identity raised by the work itself.
