Artista: Oscar  Giaconia | Ron Gorchov, Lynda Benglis, galleria d'arte bergamo

Using mainly the painting technique, meant as a digestive practice of other languages, Oscar Giaconia’s work orbits around multiple constellations: the concepts of monster, stunt, trap and autopsy are just some of the keywords, (reversible at the transformative qualities of the painting medium), which have always accompanied the diversified research of the artist, characterized by the use of synthetic devices like silicone cases, vulcanite, nylon, para rubber, neoprene rubber. For Giaconia „Painting“ is something not run by logic: “Painting is in the sensation, in what goes through you just in a biological and physiological way. Painting is as game, an expense without economy, is practising without expecting a return, is a necessary activity, in a  useless way”.

Oscar Giaconia (b. 1978) lives and works in Bergamo, Italy. He completed his studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Brera, and participated to several group exhibitions such as Too big or not too big held at Thomas Brambilla Gallery, Fuori quadro. Follia e cratività fra arte, cinema e archivio, curated by Elio Grazioli at the Sala di Porta Sant’Agostino, Bergamo, Peintures, which took place at the Musée Saint-Loup of Troyes, Happy Ending at the  FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims, and many more. His first solo show, Alea, took place at the Thomas Brambilla Gallery (2012), while other solo exhibitions was held at the BACO space and at the National Museum of Natural History di Mdina, Malta. In 2017 he participated in the project Wunderkammer N.1 at Thomas Brambilla gallery, Bergamo.
