Andrea Marchese is a Sicilian visual artist who has lived in Ferrara, Paris, Toulouse, Palermo and Rome, where he studied art and performing arts. He now lives and works between Sicily and the rest of Europe.
Through video and photography and the feeling of the absurd and the contradictory, he builds an intimate reality in which the logical boundaries fade, leaving space to the poetic vision of the forms. Melancholy, imaginary, nonsense, irony and aesthetic research are essential elements of his work.
“Attempt to photography transcendence n.1 is possibly more than just a photography project, it is the result of the relationship between the inner and the outer landscape. It is an encounter summarising the need of a shot, a photographer’s urgent need, a flash of inspiration, an intuition. A research of the horizon, the space and disorientation’s edge.”
