Simone Cametti

Sculpture and installations are a key part of his poetics, alongside other media, such as photography, audio and video art. Simone Cametti begins by observing materials and their physical characteristics: marble, iron, organic elements. He investigates their colour, mechanical properties, brightness, form, with the precise will to disguise the original material and change it completely. A subtle game used by the artist to silently, and almost invisibly, tell unheard of stories, little fragments of daily life preserving the memory of the functional past of the objects they once were. Recently, he has turned his interest to the study of landscapes and performance, keeping the material transformation of space at the core of his investigation. Literally shifting the focus on the change of perception resulting from the physical transformation of the context by the artist himself.
