Wednesday, June 8
the Diogene Tram
Turin – The fifth meeting of the Serie Inversa, Diogene’s project of investigating the art scene in Piedmont, will take place on Wednesday, June 8 at 6:30 pm at the Diogene Tram, with guest artist Mario Scudeletti, (born in Treviglio, Bergamo, on Aug.4,1980)
After receiving his diploma from the Art High School, Scudeletti enrolled at the Carrara Academy of Fine Arts in Bergamo where he attended the course of Visual Arts, first taught by Adrian Paci and then by Eva Marisaldi. He wrote his thesis on the work of Klee, Giacometti, and De Dominicis, under the supervision of Umberto Cavenago and Elio Grazioli.
He began to work mainly on the “modification” of reality, focusing primarily on the topic of knowledge, and his works ranged from tampering with encyclopedias for children up to creating various deformations of school desks. In this period, his interest shifted to the theme of the alter ego and the vision of a mythological world that blends with the scientific one, thereby highlighting the profound contradictions. He has dealt, always contradictorily, with the theme of saints and flags, mostly to verify their loss of meaning.
After his work was added to Viafarini’s Artists Archive by Milovan Farronato and published in the “New New New” column of Exibart magazine, also edited by M.Farronato, he began exhibiting his work already during his last academic year.
