Antonio Fiorentino’s research developed over the years under the umbrella of minimal intervention. The artist seeks to bring art back to nature by finding value in things that already exist, isolating them, and framing them within new contexts. Fiorentino is interested in situations of transformation as well as natural processes that create new forms through change.
Antonio Fiorentino was born in Barletta, Italy in 1987. He was selected to participate in the CSAV Artists Research Laboratory at Fondazione Antonio Ratti, and was the winner of eighth edition of the Talent Prize in Rome. Fiorentino participated in several exhibitions in Italy and abroad including: The Lasting, National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rome; Vis Attractiva, THE OPEN BOX, Milan; Ride the Falling Flux, HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme; From & To, Centre of Contemporary Art Villa Arson/ Kunst Merano, Nice/Meran; Concrete Ghost, American Academy in Rome; CSAV – Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como; Underneath the Street, the Beach, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin.antoniofiorentino.com
