Marco Siciliano (Caltagirone, Italy, 1991) lives and work in Berlin where he’s currently studing sculpture under Monica Bonvicini at the Universität der Künste.
He previously graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in 2017 with a degree in interior design.

His artistic research is shaped by the study of architecture and expressed through the use of photography, video, collage, sculpture and installations.
Body and space play a game that takes place between public and private: where modesty conceals its appearance or slowly reveals it. Together they show the vulnerability of proxemics; the inability to reach the optimal distance between two bodies in order to interact and not hurt each other.

Serial accumulation is a leitmotif of Marco’s research. The different collections create an architecture of memory that generates its own semantic connections and interactions as multiple personalities gathered together in artist books.
