Bio

Alessandro Bulgini was born in 1962 in Taranto.

After having studied at the Art School he graduated in Scenography at Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara. He lives and works in Torino, Italy.

He has lived in many Italian cities: Rome, Milan, Livorno, Venice, Genoa, Taranto, to which he owes the absolute independence and individuality of his work. Difficult to assimilate and fit into any artistic current, Bulgini uses a wide range of means; from painting to photography, from video to performance.

From 1990 to 2000 he created the cycle of works “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” while from 2001 he concentrated his research on the theme of the invisible and of the laterality with the “Hairetikos” and “Opera Viva” cycles. Performances, paintings, photographs and installations are the several means he uses, all of them are acts of opposition to a truth considered absolute, attempts to indicate something beyond the visible.

He participates in many solo and group shows in Italy and abroad: Fondazione Volume!, Rome – Centre International d’accueil et d’echanges des Recollets, Paris – Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art, Paris, New York – Fondazione Pastificio Cerere, Rome – Sound Art Museum, Zerynthia, Rome – CIAC, Castello Colonna, Genazzano – Castello Sforzesco, Milan – Castello Cavour, Santena – Cordy House, London – Fondazione 107, Turin – La Triennale, Milan – Frost Art Museum, Miami, FL – HVCCA, New York, NY – Museo Ettore Fico, Turin.

Bulgini is always working to “grasp” life, because “the purest and most perfect art there is on earth is that of living, of life, of the physical appearance in a precise moment and never again”(G. Parise), of the living artwork, the Opera Viva.
