Marco Maria Zanin in dialogue with Leonardo Caffo

Zanin’s poetics, which focuses on the submerged matrices of modern behavior, consists in a rereading, through the prism of art, of the relationship between man, territory and time, and has as its point of reference the horizon linked to the land and folk traditions, with their substratum of myths and archetypes.

His research is thus nourished by an attention to the anthropological aspects of reality. The works are often made from waste or recycled materials. The artist’s gaze is sharpened through the practice of dislocation: by traveling Zanin enacts a “displacement” that is not only physical, and acquires the critical distance that allows him a more autonomous analysis of social contexts, which the artist does not fail to analyze from a global perspective.

His work Family portrait recently entered the nctm collection and art and will be on view at the Studio on the occasion of the meeting.
