Matteo Mezzadri

“I like the idea of an art that is able to transform physical space, forcing it to become something else”

Matteo Mezzadri is born in Parma in 1973, starting his artistic career as self-taught in the mid-1900s. After his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science at the University of Bologna and a Master’s Degree in Communication Design at the Politecnico of Milan, he devotes himself completely both to art and photography. In 2009, thanks both to a collaboration with ZimmerFrei group and a special residence in New York, he approaches the video art that immediately becomes an essential tool. His vision focuses on the concept of “architecture of ties” with particular attention to the great contemporary metropolises and the complex relational dynamics that characterize them. In 2012 he begins the photographic series titled Minimum Cities, work exhibited for the first time at MIA in Milan and then in numerous galleries, museums and exhibitions in Italy and abroad such as the prestigious European Month of Photography in Bratislava in 2014. The photo series will receive several awards including the Sony World Photography Awards of the WPO in London. In 2016 he meets the Artantide Gallery and the curator Sandro Orlandi Stagl, thanks to whom he will participate in the Italian edition of the Biennale Italia-Cina at the Arca of Vercelli and in the Chinese edition of the same Biennale at the Plastic Cultural Park in Beijing.
