Alessio Calega was born in Florence in 1982.
His artistic practice seems to want to describe the heavy reality in which we live. This unease is expressed through the use of objects related to their domestic belongings, torn from their contexts and made part of the work. Among these, there is the obsession reproduced in the eye and in the heart, which have become important symbols to be used as interpretations of the artist’s current poetics.
In today’s production, Alessio continues his research within his studio, while maintaining his distinctive and recognizable signs as if he had now found his own “handwriting” to communicate his being to the world. The viewer finds himself in front of a strong and emotional work, which can tell a single experience or a whole life, while leaving free interpretation.
