pierpaolo campanini: biography, selected museum exhibitions and shows at kaufmann repetto

 

biography

Pierpaolo Campanini was born in Cento (Ferrara), in 1964. He lives and works in Italy.

Pierpaolo Campanini’s research explores the inherent limits and possibilities of painting, creating moments marked by a sense of incompleteness and transience: precariously united, ephemeral composites survive only through their painted representation. At the same time intimate and monumental, the sculptures assembled in his studio in a meticulous process of accumulation of objects and natural elements are, through pictorial mediation, rendered solitary creatures – inhabitants of a fictitious reality, both tangible and indefinite.
