Right from the start, influenced by the atmosphere of the Arte Povera movement, Paolo Piscitelli has worked in a broad range of techniques and disciplines including drawing, sculpture, installation, digital media, phenomenological experimentation with materials and their interaction with time. A bridge is thus formed between different places, times and cultural contexts. Piscitelli’s work is in fact generated by the flow linked to his moves from Italy to the Unites States where the artist has been living and working for years. His current work and research involves the use of simple hand-tools to carve small-scale sculptures assessed with the sight and touch.
Paolo Piscitelli (Venaria Reale, 1971) currently lives and works between New York and Pittsburgh, USA. He has exhibited internationally in private spaces like Studio Tucci Russo in Torre Pellice (Turin), and Galerie Paul Andriesse, Amsterdam, e/static, Turin, as well as in public spaces like Torino's GAM, Bologna’s GAM, the FRAC-Bourgogne in Dijon, the MLAC in Rome, the Lawndale Art Center, Houston, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, and the Museum of Art in Denver.
