ETTORE FAVINI

BIOGRAPHY

Was born in Cremona, Italy in 1974. He taps the experience of listening to “minor” narratives to fuel works that map the relationship between people and their environment. Memory, both individual and collective, is often at the center of a path that moves from autobiographical sources of inspiration toward universal themes like time and existence. His work, which tend to be site-specific, are developed through a long growth process that renders them living organism, never truly finished: open-ended devices of vision in winch the work partakes in life and the viewer become an active participant.Awarded the Artegiovane prize from the Milan and Turin Chambers of Commerce (2005) and the prestigious Premio New York from Columbia University (2007), Favini has been shortlisted for the Castello di Rivoli prize (2009), shared the 48th Premio Suzzara (2013) with Antonio Rovaldi and in 2017 winner of IX edition of NCTM and arts.
