Flavio Favelli

Flavio Favelli, Black Tulip, 2014

Born in Florence in 1967, he lives and work in Savigno (Bo), Italy.  Flavio Favelli has developed his artistic practice from an intimate and very personal concept of time and space. By assembling gates, benches, doors, railings, balconies, chairs, tables, beds, mirrors, carpets and chandeliers the artist creates works of functional appearance that transform the atmosphere of the places that contain them while charging them with emotions. His installations focus on the aesthetic and poetic value of everyday objects that surround us. His work is a continuous attempt at reworking his own sense of disorientation. The mosaic of mirrors in an ancient frame, instead of reflecting, fragments the mirror image, and seems to register the arbitrary nature of our relationship with the world through this bizarre synthesis. He has carried out projects, exhibitions and installations in important public and private institutions in Italy and abroad. He has realized two working bar installations at MAMBO museum of Bologna and Marca museum of Catanzaro. He also realized two public and permanent environments: 2005 Vestibolo, venue of ANAS in Palazzetto Foscari, Venice; Sala d’Attesa, Pantheon, Monumental cimitery of Certosa, Bologna. In 2012 he was invited at the 11th Havana Biennale in Cuba and in 2013 at the 55th Venice Biennale. In 2010 he was artist-in-residence at the American Academy in Rome for the Italian Fellowship.
