About the artist
Gian Maria Tosatti is an Italian artist who creates site-specific installations. Tosatti made his first steps into the art world at the Centre for Theatrical Research and Experimentation working on performances, but later undertook an artistic research between architecture and visual arts which inspired all his subsequent works resulting in site-specific installations.
His projects usually are long term investigations on specific topics related to the concept of identity from the political and spiritual standpoint. Tosatti is also a journalist and he writes essays about art and politics. His work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Italy, the USA, Cuba and Israel. Tosatti has won several art prizes and his exhibitions have been critically acclaimed by art magazines ArtReview, Domus and Artribune.
