Italian Artist Scerbo : Meanings and Constructions
Scerbo is an Italian artist creating in a counterproductive approach. Following his studies in philosophy, he developed an artistic process based on experimentation and fumbling.
Through a physical engagement of the body in the process, he constructs, locks things together, intertwines. He gives new meanings to ordinary daily life objects, but then dismantles everything. The only things that stays of his sculptures, installations and performances are the images and the memories : the immaterial vestige.
“My experiments with different materials or techniques begin and end without any rational continuity.”
“Matter now looks very much like a series of Russian dolls, one containing the others.”
- Vilém Flusser (Immaterialism)
“I am interested in conveying a message of pure and unadulterated reflection, distancing myself from sterile provocations and loud denunciations, as I concentrate my efforts on instilling awareness of different aspects of present reality, which I see as a conglomerate of tensions and contradictions between the human ego and its existential evolution.”
