Emilio Fantin is an Italian artist. In his research sets the conditions for dialectic exchange between differing forms of knowledge- from mathematical logic, to agriculture, to the world of dreams. His forays into the field of logic aim to illuminate boundaries between reason and intuition as fertile ground for provocative insight and overlap. Fantin operates from the conviction that flow, impulse, intention and movements of thought – albeit subjective, invisible, and immaterial – constitute the very real origin of concrete and manifest fact.
Fantin has exhibited in major Italian and international exhibition venues including: Sensibile Comune GNAM, Galleria Nazionale Arte Moderna, Roma (2016); ASU Art Museum at Arizona State University (2013), Documenta 13 (2012); Frasq, International Festival of Performance, Paris (2011); Performa, New York, (2007); Venice Biennials (1993, 1999, 2008).
For Emilio we realised a website incorporating a typography identity based on the open font Basier Square. The User Experience of the project revolves around the idea of reproducing an analog feeling, a sort of desk environment where transitions and interactive objects mimic the irl counterpart, including a live platform.
