Alessandro Di Pietro (Messina, 1987) lives and works in Milan.
His artistic research focuses on the processes of normalization and deviation from the standard systems of language production and monstrosity production.
His practice ranges in the use of different media and finds space also within the cinematographic media thanks to which the artist can develop new production strategies through proto-narrative installation environments, technologies, objects and stories.
In 2013 he graduated in Graphic Arts at theAccademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan and in 2012 he participated to the eighteenth edition of the Advanced Course in Visual Arts of Fondazione Ratti,Como. Over the years he has participated in numerous workshops and residences, among the most recent we mention Q-Rated in the context of the Rome Quadriennale (Lecce, 2018) and the American Academy in Rome thanks to the CY Twombly Fellowship 2017-2018. The artist also has worked on many publications, the most recent Mostri contro Fantasmi in collaboration with Enrico Boccioletti and presented with SEPTEMBER BOOKS at ICA Milan (2019).
