Massimo Bartolini

Massimo Bartolini was born in 1962 in Cecina, in the province of Livorno, where he lives and works. He uses in his work different techniques such as photography, video, performance, installation and the realization of interventions able to transform the initial spacemanipulating light, sound, smell, and architecture to create disorienting experiences.

In his works, Bartolini is interested in experimenting with expectations, relativity, and assumptions of what is fixed versus in flux; these themes become metaphors for imagination, memory, nostalgia, and obsession.

His best known works are immersive installations, often sensual, that induce in the viewer an heightened awareness or meditation that is still highly experiential, making us reflect on the relativity of what is stable and unchangeable.
