The path and the work of Christian Fogarolli are characterized by a strong interest in the individual and collective identity systems, investigated through different perspectives and through frequent archival research. The artworks can be contextualized within a study on image and object perception in relation to subjectivity, probing ties with the abnormality and deviance. They pose questions about the abundance of images that we have and the use we offer them.
Christian Fogarolli was born in Trento in 1983. He obtained in 2010 the Master Inside the image: study, diagnosis and restoration of antique, modern and contemporary paintings at the University of Verona and graduated the following year in Management and Conservation of Cultural Heritage. He has exhibited in solo shows and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
In 2012 he was selected for dOCUMENTA (13) for the research project Lost identities, exhibited in The Worldly House; in 2013 he exhibited in La Magnifica Ossessione at the Mart in Rovereto. His works are in private and public collections including the Maison Rouge Antoine de Galbert in Paris, the AGI Collection and the Benetton Foundation.
