Giordano Biondi’s latest sculptures are given the role of conjured objects, invocations, spells. A house smaller than the human scale, is inhabited by something boundless, its mystery expressed by the minute dwelling that expresses it. A magical phrase does not disperse, but finds containment and definition in its potion, castle, or island.
Giordano Is a Melbourne-based Italian-Australian visual artist. He attended Visual Arts and Theatre at IUAV University in Venice, and finished a Masters in Art in Public Space at RMIT in Melbourne. He started his art practice in Venice and has participated in exhibitions in Australia and Italy. He participated in an artist residencies in Turkey, Germany and China, producing solo and collaborative public art installations, and has curated group shows in Melbourne, Venice, Perugia and Milan. He is currently represented by West End Art Space in Melbourne. His art practice is based on reflection upon architectural and landscape elements. He has lately focused on cityscapes that invites the gaze to linger in everyone of its components. Each house and palace is the locus of an encounter or an idea, expressed through the peculiarity of its architecture. The whole picture is then an alphabet or an archive into which the gaze consults, travels, or finds refuge and solace.
