Domenico Mangano

Domenico Mangano was born in Palermo (Sicily) in 1976, and he lives and works in Amsterdam (NL). He established himself on the national and international scene at the beginning of the twenty-first century with his photographs and videos that are somewhere between surrealism and the documentary. The artist has always used this kind of stylistic approach in order to investigate the contrasts that are inherent in reality and the relationship that exists between philosophical and theoretical systems and everyday situations. Ever since he started out his artistic research has concentrated on issues of social marginality on a local level, the situation of outsiders, and alternative situations of resistance or freedom from social rules. The artist is interested in getting metaphorically lost in the details, so as to present a universal scenario which expresses the essence of humanity, despite the fact that it consists of particular languages ​​and landscapes. Solo Exhibitions (selection):2019 When the Whistle Glares, Magazzino, Roma; 2018 Sonnet Cycle, FPAC, Milan, IT; 2017 Homestead of dilution, Onomatopee, Eindhoven, The Netherlands; 2017 Homestead of dilution, Nomas Foundation, Rome, Italy; 2016 Dilution in Curacao, IBB: Instituto Buena Bista, Willemstad, Curaçao; 2015 Birds singing, sandy ground, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, Rome, Italy; 2015 Dilution in Den Dolder, Het Vijfde Seizoen, Den Dolder, The Netherlands; 2014 Avantieri, FPAC, Palermo, Italy; 2014 De wissel/the exchange, Kunsthuis SYB, Beetsterzwaag, The Netherlands; 2013 Werken is leven, Magazzino, Rome, Italy; 2013 Rite and surprise: a screening by Domenico Mangano, Karlin Studios, Prague, Czech Republic; 2012 War game, LWZ Projekte, Wien, Austria; 2012 Hou en trouw, L’Ozio, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 2012 Fit, Velan Center, Turin, Italy; 2009 Twinkle twiddle, Complesso Monumentale Santo Spirito in Sassia, Rome, Italy; 2008 Over the blurring shine, Museum Hendrik C.
