Andrea Magnani

magnaniandrea.com

Andrea Magnani (1983) lives and works in Milan. His research delves into meaning-making processes, staging the overlapping of order and generative tensions. In his meticulously constructed environments, the viewer is haunted by a distilled reality where uncanny yet familiar objects participate in a sensual balancing act. Whether being unreadable drawings, “fake readymades” or non-spectacular performances, the dialogue among every part of a work aids to evoke non-verbal feelings. Erosive ambiences, where the boundary between reality (authenticity) and representation (art) is constantly shifting.
Andrea has exhibited and performed in public and private spaces, including: INTERSTATE Projects, Marsèlleria (New York), Kai Art Center (Tallinn), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, PAV, Giorgio Galotti, Archivio di Stato (Turin), T293, Fondazione Baruchello, Villa Farinacci promoted by MAXXI museum (Rome), Live Arts Week at MAMbo(Bologna), Italienska Kulturinstitutet (Stockholm), Stanford Housing (London), Can Serrat (Barcelona), Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), Marsèlleria, O’, Viafarini, Crepaccio, Mars (Milan).

The Logo represents the action of evolutionary and creative forces, feeds a cyclic system where complexity and organicity alternate fueling the bonds and energies at stake. The use of Gestalt laws, whether it is the letter “S” or two “drops” in motion, perception moves between the two, reinforcing the idea that in each system always has a different way of looking at things. The associative processes capable of creating a structure are based on rules simple but summable exponentially. The logo as a base cell for the creation of different patterns to underline its aggregative potential.
