biography

Marcello Maloberti was born in 1966 in Codogno (Lodi), Italy. He lives and works in Milan.

Malobertiʼs artistic research draws inspiration from trivial events and urban contexts, paying attention to shapeless and precarious states of life. His observations, however, go beyond the ordinary evidence of everyday life experience thanks to an often estranged and visionary neorealistic approach. His performances and multimedia installations take place in both private and public spaces having a strong interactive impact for the audience. The artist puts together an extremely condensed, theatrical narrative and suspenseful atmospheres for the viewer to watch and feel. The performersʼ bodies belong to each other, they are part of a dialogue as they set up a participatory event. Maloberti also emphasizes the relationship between art and life researching new approaches to photography, video, performance, installation, sculpture and drawing, as to form a contemporary gesamtkunstwerk.
