STEFANO OGLIARI BADESSI 

 

      QUICK BIOGRAPHIC 

 

Stefano Ogliari Badessi is a nomadic installation artist. He has adapted his creations to be mobile and easily- transportable, giving him the freedom to pack up and take his art to any remote corner of the globe. Each of his installations is first imagined as a fantasy to touch some alternate sphere of reality and then realized using unique sensory combinations and performance collaborations.

 

A large part of what makes Stefano’s art unique is his ongoing study of materials. One of his biggest, and most gratifying, challenges is finding the most mundane material and transforming it into something sensational. Most recently, he has used plastic bags and wrap to construct immense inflatable installations. Stefano’s installations become the sum of sensations experienced inside the created space- sensual, ethereal, incorporeal, universal and illuminating.

 

Beauty is the gateway to unexplored territories- the sub-conscious dreamlike part of all of us where we feel most free and alive and where self-discovery is most possible.

Stefano most recently presented "InnerSpace", his installation at a satellite exhibition for the 2016 Art Basel Miami.

In 2014 he completed a residence in China, having been selected by François-Henri Pinault as a guest artist at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel, Shanghai. The project was presented at the 56° Biennale Of Venice.
