Mer om Andrea Morucchio Skulptur, installation, video och fotokonst
After receiving a degree in Political Science from the University of Padua, Andrea Morucchio began his photographic career in 1989. In the mid-90s he produced an important body of work connected to prolonged stays in Cuba and Nepal. Since the end of the '90s, he has expanded his own linguistic research – often based on considerations of a socio-political nature – in various directions, from sculpture to installation, from video to photography and performance. His works are preserved in the Museo del Vetro / Glass Museum, Murano, Musei Civici, Venezia and in the Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart, Australia. He has been the curator of various exhibitions and art projects, such as PetroLogiche (2004), dealing with issues regarding the problems caused by the Petrochemical of Porto Marghera, Mars Pavilion (2005) during the 52^ Biennale di Venezia at the Greenhouse of the Giardini di Castello, Venezia.
