Marco Siciliano (Caltagirone, 1991). Live and work in Berlin, where he’s attending Sculpture at Monica Bonvicini Class at Universität der Künste Berlin.
In 2017 he gradueted in Interior Design in Politecnico di Milano.

Through the analysis of psychosomatic pain and proxemics distances, he investigates relationships among bodies, transliterated into multidisciplinary works.

In its artistic research the space assumes a pivotal role, a field where bodies acquire coordinates to appear in intimate places or in unknown landscapes, hiding and fragmenting themselves as we silently observe their slow dissolution between public and private.

Photography and its serial accumulation are a leit motiv of Siciliano’s research. Individual elements are catalogued and collected in self-published books.
