Andrea Sala

Born in Como (Italy) in 1976, Andrea Sala lives and works in Milan, where he received his diploma from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts.

He imagines new environments and worlds by mixing present and future images, oscillating between reality, fiction and imagination. He gives special attention to the forms of design and architecture, questioning the materials that constitute them and their formal values. Taking his inspiration from design objects, Andrea Sala appropriates and transforms already existing forms, finding new potentialities and reshaping them into new aspects and contexts.

His works have gained international attention and have been exhibited in several venues, including the 9th Venice Biennale of Architecture (2004), the MAMCO Musée d’art moderne et contemporain in Geneva (2003), MACO, Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca (2007), Kaleidoscope Space in Milan (2010), La Maison Rouge in Paris (2012), the Musée d’art de Joliette (2012) and the Fondation Guido Molinari in Montréal (2012). His works can be found in the col­lection of the MAXXI - National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, Rome, at the Banca Albertini Syz, Milan and private collections. Some of his works have been exhibited as part of the latest Triennale of Milan.
