After receiving a degree in Political Science from the University of Padua, Andrea Morucchio began his photographic career in 1989. In the mid-90s he produced an important body of work connected to prolonged stays in Cuba and Nepal. Since the end of the ’90s, he has expanded his own linguistic research – often based on considerations of a socio-political nature – in various directions, from sculpture to installation, from video to photography and performance.

His works are preserved in the Museo del Vetro / Glass Museum, Murano, Musei Civici, Venezia, in the Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart, Australia and in the Provenance Collections, Tacoma, Usa. He has been the curator of various exhibitions and art projects, such as PetroLogiche (2004), dealing with issues regarding the problems caused by the Petrochemical of Porto Marghera, Mars Pavilion (2005) during the 52^ Biennale di Venezia at the Greenhouse of the Giardini di Castello, Venezia. Morucchio’s most recent interventions, like the multimedia installation The Rape of Venice held at Palazzo Mocenigo in 2015, deepen sensori-emotional values, even those that sometimes we call judgments of sentiment and taste, and are evidence of the artist’s attentive critical reflection on art, culture and the deviancies of our contemporary society.

To approach Andrea Morucchio’s work means to enter into a somewhat disorienting proteiform creative dimension, which has formed itself along a vast horizon of investigation. In fact, for over a decade the artist has used the mediums of photography, sculpture, installation, video, and performance in a continuous experimentation of expression, experience, and sense creation. The artist is well acquainted with this material and its various effects, possibilities, and production techniques. Every one of his works represents an absolute innovation, because the point of view is radically silenced, as is his concept of the world and style. Andrea Morucchio relies on reason for tools to express this concept and his vision of humanity is desperately romantic: “So long as we feel well, we do not exist” says Cioran, and this is why the artist challenges himself: to unload the tension in a metaphysical flash of memory, in that very profound stillness that separates doubt from truth.
