Namsal Siedlecki

Namsal Siedlecki (Greenfield, USA 1986), lives and works in Seggiano, Italy. In 2015 he won the Cy Twombly Italian Affiliated Fellow in Visual Arts at the American Academy in Rome.

Siedlecki works mostly with sculpture, and he is often interested in transformative properties of materials. His works are often bound to transformation, evolution, moving along the thin barrier between the ephemeral and the permanent. Very often linking to folklore, the history of arts and the evolution of culture as a whole, Siedlecki’s works combine several forms of suggestions into objects that have an ambiguous, poetic-yet-playful nature.

Siedlecki was awarded, in 2019, with the GAMeC Prize for Young Artist, the Italian Council Prize for the Arts 2019, and the XX Premio Cairo for Contemporary Arts.
