MAURO GIACONI

Argentina, 1977

Curriculum

 

Giaconi’s work takes place in the field of sculpture, installation and mainly drawing, which operates as the heart of all his production and starting point to generate spatial interventions and imagery that moves across  the aesthetics of chaos and procedural investigation. Architecture, structure, memory and environment are all key elements in the artist’s practice, which focuses on proposing experiences that build tension between opposite concepts like construction and destruction; birth and death; confinement and freedom; depth and surface; dream and awakening.

In 2001 he obtained a tittle of Teacher in Painting from the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredon, Buenos Aires, Argentina. He received the first prize in the Philips Young Talents and a honorable mention at the National Drawing Salon. He’s been selected for the First and Second ArteBA-Petrobras Award and received a scholarship from the Center for Artistic Research (CIA) during 2010. His work has been exhibited in renowned international institutions such as the Fina Arts Palace Museum and the Carrillo Gil Art Museum in Mexico and  the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art in Argentina. In the field of art teaching, he has taught at the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón in 2002, and in 2011 he was a professor at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (Cuernavaca, Mexico).

His body of work is part of collections such as the SPACE Collection, USA; Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art, Argentina; Miami Art Museum, USA; among others.
