MASSIMILIANO MORO (SWITZERLAND - سويسرا)
Massimiliano Moro. Born in Cittadella (Italy) in 1986 and currently lives and works between Lugano (Switzerland) and Barcelona (Spain). In his artistic practice he seeks the creation of new equilibriums between light and architecture through the practices of design and sculpture. Its interdisciplinary methodology results in interventions that modify the perception of space.
In 2006, he began his artistic training at La Escola Massana where he studied Sculpture and later graduated in Art and Design. At the European Institute of Design in Barcelona he obtained the Master IED in Architectural Lighting, where he currently teaches Light Art. During his student years, he collaborated with the international artist Tom Carr, participating in the creation of the TCTeamwork group with which he made several exhibitions (Centro Huarte en Navarra, Centre Cultural El Carme en Badalona, Museu de Tortosa, among others).
Since 2015, he has been working independently carrying out exhibitions throughout Europe (Palermo, Milan, Rome, Lugano, Padua, Banska Stiavnica, ...). He has also collaborated in numerous projects such as 080 Barcelona Fashion week 2016, Circolo Turba, Artificio and Gioielleria Preziosi, and his works are part of various private collections. In 2017 he was elected “emergent light designer of the year” for the LIT Award.
Constantly traveling to the sun
2019, Wood, Aluminum, plexiglas, LEDs, lenses
A constant voyage around a circle made of light, with no start nor end. Light, shadows and reflections create a new relationship in the space, where the look can roam free and observe the fragile equilibrium that is generated when light touches the environment. A visual journey through visible and invisible, inciting an evocative synesthesia and challenging the ability of interpretation and understanding of space, and allowing the spectator to lose track of time and discover a new point of view.
