About the Artists

Riccardo Giacconi

His work has been exhibited in various institutions, such as WUK Kunsthalle Exnergasse (Vienna), FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (France), FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (France), tranzitdisplay (Prague), MAXXI (Rome), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin) and in the “Résonance” section of the Lyon Biennale.


Simone Bertuzzi (b. 1983) and Simone Trabucchi (b. 1982) have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. Although they primarily work in moving image and sound, Invernomuto also integrate sculpture, publishing, and performance in their practice. Recent solo exhibitions include Africa Addio, pinksummer, Genoa (2015), MALÙ, Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Toronto (2015), Artspeak, Vancouver (2015), Wondo Genet, AuditoriumArte, Rome (2015), Anabasis Articulata, Triennale di Milano, Milan (2014), Marsèlleria, Milan (2014), Negus – Far Eye, Museion, Bozen (2014), I-Ration, ar/ge kunst, Bozen (2014), The Celestial Path, GAMeC, Bergamo (2013) and Simone, Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, Ferrara (2011). Bertuzzi and Trabucchi also pursue individual practices in the field of music, performing under the names Palm Wine and Dracula Lewis respectively. They live and work in Milan and Vernasca.

Luca Trevisani

Luca Trevisani (b. 1979) researches and makes work that exists between sculpture and video, and disciplines that are inter-related, such as the performing arts, graphics, design, experimental cinema and architecture. In his installations the historical characteristics of sculpture are questioned and even subverted. Instability is a main feature of his work, a state of ever-changing development that expands and contracts, extending the borders between each element of the work and the environment. He has participated in exhibitions and awards in major centers and art museums, including Museo Marino Marini (2014), MAXXI, Rome (2012), MACRO, Rome (2010), Haus am Waldsee (2012), Magasin, Grenoble (2011), Mart, Rovereto (2011), Biennale d'Architettura, Venice (2008-2010), Manifesta7 (2008), Museion, Bozen (2008), Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2007), Daimler Kunstsammlung, Berlin (2011), CCA Antratx, Mallorca (2011), Giò Marconi Milan (2008), Pinksummer, Genoa (2006-2009), MAMbo, Bologna (2009). Glaucocamaleo, presented at the 2013 Festival del Cinema in Rome, was his first feature film.
