Sorry, nothing in cart.
It was a great emotion for me to meet Gianluigi in his studio of the Corriere della Sera, in Via Solferino 28 and being inside a building where many pages of the Italian history have been written.
His room is very characteristic and entering it can be a problem, only himself knows his “order” so you can be overwhelmed by books, magazines, newspapers; they are every type and everywhere. And then there is him, who was able to develop and express his messages in a contemporary way. Taking part to the Itart project he brought his different way of doing reporting, which is his way of expressing art.
Gianluigi Colin was born in Pordenone in 1956, and for many years his art practice has explored the dialogue between word and image. His work begins as an investigation of the past, the significance of representation, and of vision’s many layers. Its rich visual poetics feature references to art history and current events, and tend to set past and present on the same plane, blurring temporal divisions. Colin’s aesthetic has deep social and ethical convictions, and aims to bring activism back into art-related experience.
Colin has an eclectic personality—he is Art Director of the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, has conducted conferences, seminars, and university courses, and has also written essays and articles on photography and visual communication.
He has had numerous national and international solo shows (including exhibitions at the Palazzo del Arengario in Milan in 1998, the Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires in 2002, the Manege Exhibition Hall in St. Petersburg in 2003, the MADRE in Naples, and the e Bienal del Fin del Mundo in Ushuaia in 2011).
Colin has produced performances (organized in various locations around the globe), participated in Valencia09 (at the IVAM in Valencia in 2009), was selected for the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial and present (2013) at Post-Classici exibition in Fori Imperiali, Rome.
His work is in private collections, museums, and public institutions in Italy and abroad. He lives and works in Milan.
