MICHELE CHIOSSI

(Lucca, Italy, 1970)

Michele Chiossi (1970, lives and works in Milan) since years follows a singular and profound research on the moods which mark our lives, from his analysis on food, to the ones on drinking, he constantly interrogates himself on the practice of sculpture, on the meanings of the social behaviors and our daily choices, creating original and creative “still lives”.
Thought like “musts”, first of all, it’s been the Parmigiano Reggiano, icon of a global Italian identity, from where he had drawn the distinctive marchiatura d’origine, using the lettering, a font, composed by dots, that like a constellation, claims subjects in the conceptual re-writing of the name itself. The dot becomes fondamental not only in the drawings, but also in its photographical representation, as a tea light, in the BURNING FEELINGS cycle, and becomes three-dimensional in the neon backlit sculpture.
The dot is complemental to the line, and the line is his personal and peculiar trade-mark: an original free hand line, a zig zag stroke, made out of simple horizontal and vertical lines, which are often translated sculpturaly, and that philosophically reveals the complexity of the contemporary thoughts.
