Diego Bruno

STATEMENT
My artistic practice evolves from the existing relations and ruptures between form and information. Surfaces, and systems appearing through different aspects of culture, history, objects and spaces.

Using a diverse range of media, the works focus on systems of translation and transference;  questioning how are aesthetic ideas assimilated and reactivated politically, or socially, at a local level? And more broadly speaking, how are ideas themselves embedded within the fabric of the exhibition space?

The idea that things do not exist in isolation, but instead constitute part of a network of invisible connections that both condition and meld them, is inherent to the works mistrust in the simplicity of appearance. Asking how to imagine or represent thought from within art that addresses certain artistic, social, political, and ideological structures as forms.
