Edoardo Tresoldi explores the poetics of the dialogue between human beings and the landscape, using the language of architecture as an expressive tool and as a key to reading space. The artist plays with the transparency of wire mesh to transcend the spatiotemporal dimension and narrate a dialogue between art and the world, a visual synthesis revealed in the fading of the physical boundaries of his works.
Born in Milan, Tresoldi moved to Rome after art school, working in the fields of sculpture, stage design and the cinema, where he developed a heterogeneous approach to the arts. The sculptor recognized the contrasts of the contemporary landscape as his Genius Loci and identified the cross-fertilization of ideas and influences as the founding principle of his work.
Since 2013 he has produced installations in public spaces, archaeological sites, festivals and exhibitions around the world. In 2016, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Culture, he realized a work for the archaeological site of the Early Christian basilica of Siponto, a unique convergence between contemporary art and archaeology that was awarded the Gold Medal for Italian Architecture.
In 2018 the artist produced “Etherea” for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the USA. In 2019 he presented “Simbiosi” in the prestigious context of Arte Sella and founded STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO, an interdisciplinary lab that supports artists, public art projects and contemporary art production. In 2020 he inaugurated a permanent installation called “Opera” in Reggio Calabria, Italy.
