Mauro Giaconi

The work of Mauro Giaconi explores the possibilities of drawing as an expanded field, through which the artist reaches over other disciplines, such as sculpture and installation, in a way to investigate the architecture, the precariousness and the body as territories in conflict.

In this sense, the artist subverts both the role of paper as a medium, as well as the idea of drawing as the basal expression of general artistic practice. This leads towards the occupation of space, the performative gesture that emphases the corporal experience, and the intervention of objects and universal references belonging to the contemporary metanarrative.

Within the conceptual field, his works usually present contents and experiences that either clash or dissolve contrasts, such as birth and death, construction and demolition, freedom and imprisonment, in a thought-provoking gesture that revisits and questions the dichotomous signification of ideas.
