Massimo Bartolini (Cecina 1962), is undoubtedly one of the most internationally recognized Italian artists. In his work, Massimo Bartolini uses a wide range of media, such as photography, video and performances. These mediums often puts the artist in dialogue with the surroundings.
Disorienting, yet meditative
The masterful level of manipulation of light, sound, smell or architecture results from more than 30 years of artistic practice. Bartolini’s work offers the viewers with a disorienting experience, almost a meditative state. This is enabled by a transformation of the initial space. It is a reflection of how relative the concept is. What is stable and unchangeable is subject to the viewer’s interpretatio
