Andrea Galvani was born in Verona, Italy in 1973. He lives and works in Milan and Brooklyn. "I work for weeks in an area. The process involves camping out, building temporary structures, shifting animals, people and physically intervening the space. In fact, I feel that I need to get close to the land, to slowly repossess it in order to then violate it, turn it on it's head using different materials including smoke, mirrors, balloons, images'fragments. I'm trying to reactivate the visual mechnanism through real actions. The relationship with experience, risk, atmospheric phenomenon and physical limitations of means as well as the site in wich I work, are all deciding factors in the development of my projects. My research often takes on a scientific aspect, focusing attention on the invisible mechanisms that construct and transform life."
