Alessandro Giannì  

Alessandro Giannì, Breaking Darkness Tang Contemporary Art

BREAKING DARKNESS, Installation view, Tang Contemporary Art,Bangkok, 2023


Born in Rome, 1989


In his work he collects aesthetic fragments from the web with the intention of giving them a new existence. In his artworks the analogical practice of painting merges with the use of new media, with the Internet and digital culture, investigating the connections between the digital universe, parallel universes, and the dreamlike and introspective world of human beings. In his research there are different types of works, both of a traditional nature (painting, drawing and sculpture), and of a technological nature (AI, VR, video, animation, 3D printing). In 2019 He has created “Vasari”, an artificial intelligence which is able to emulate his creative and conceptual process and can assist him in composing sketches. In 2020 he is one of the founders of Spaziomensa, an artist-run space created to enhance the Roman artistic ferment.
He has exhibited in several gallery and institutions in Italy and abroad including:
Tang Contemporary art (Bangkok / Hong Kong / Beijing); Postmasters Gallery (New York); the American University Katzen Arts Center (Washington DC, USA); the residence of the Italian ambassador to the USA “Villa Firenze” (Washington DC, USA); the MAXXI museum (Rome, Italy); the MACRO museum (Rome, Italy); the House of Arms (Rome, Italy); the Swiss Institute of Rome (Italy); the Swiss Institute of Milan (Italy); Kühlhaus Berlin (Berlin, Germany); the Gardens of the Venice Casino (Venice, Italy). He was art director in the EGH, a project whit Enrico Ghezzi and Emiliano Montanari inside the 73rd Venice Biennale of Cinema. Recent exhibitions include: Due to the Image, Postmasters Gallery (New York, USA); Global Song, Tang Contemporary (Hong Kong); II, Spaziomensa (Rome, Italy); Salon Palermo, Rizzuto Gallery (Palermo, Italy); Expo Azimut Libera Impresa (Fiera Milano-Rho); Messinscèna, Numero Cromatico (Rome, Italy); Questa razza di diavoli non conosce regole!, Maker Faire - The European Edition; L'apocalisse dell'ora, AlbumArte (Rome, Italy).
