Davide Sgambaro

Born in 1989 in Cittadella (Padua), IT. Lives and works in Turin, IT.

Davide Sgambaro’s research explores existential issues relating to the condition and role of the artist and art world in contemporary precariousness. Using different media, that range from installation to photography, from sculpture to video, the artist gives life to caustic narratives as a response to the disparities of contemporary world through ironic forms. Drawing on childhood imagery and adopting a playful and irreverent attitude typical of childhood, Sgambaro activates survival mechanisms to imagine a new utopia. In this direction, his works reveal and exorcise beliefs, fears and distortions inherent in the social and cultural order.
