Patrick Tuttofuoco

Born in Milan, 1974. Lives and works in Berlin.

Patrick Tuttofuoco’s practice is conceived as a dialogue between individuals and their ability to transform the environment they inhabit, by exploring notions of community and social integration in order to combine immediate sensorial allure with the power to trigger profound theoretical responses. Tuttofuoco melds Modernism and Pop; he presses figuration into abstraction, using man as the paradigm of existence, as the matrix and measuring unit of reality. From this interpretative and cognitive process, infinite versions of man and the context of his existence are produced, from which shapes able to animate the sculptures are generated.

Patrick Tuttofuoco participated at the 50th Venice Biennale (2003), Manifesta 5 (2004), at the 6th Shanghai Biennale (2006) and at 10th Havana Biennal (2009). His works has been exhibited in several institutions such as Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy (2006) and the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (2008).
