Graziano Locatelli is an Italian artist working with mixed media and creating artworks from ready made materials like tiles.
I started assembling small tiles of aluminium that I cut from larger foils, I painted and put them together to produce works that would later represent the main structure of my current production. My early works are sharp and are often torn apart by heads and figures that try and break the wall and is still the subject of the breakage that bewitches me.
After a few attempts at mixing cement, glue and tiles, I created a copious body of works that revolves around the theme of abandoned places. I wonder what meanings and feelings these (once) familiar places arouse in those who lived there. I see them as restless dreams, spaces in ruins inhabited by ghosts that still retain an embryonic life.
Jaakko Pernu is a Finnish sculptor and environment artist living in the city of Oulu. He has been working 20 years with natural material - often in an oversized scale. Lately he has been working mostly abroad creating many public site specific works around Europe and Canada. Pernu’s work is generally made of natural materials – branches and trunks found near a site, expertly woven together to achieve exquisite forms. Often made of willow, his works are typically left to the elements, and their degradation serves as an aspect of the work as they weather and decay over time.
