Giordano Biondi – Artist in Residence at West End
Giordano is a Melbourne-based Italo-Australian visual artist. He studied Visual Arts and Theatre at IUAV University in Venice, and has a Masters in Art in Public Space at RMIT. He started his art practice in a group exhibition in Venice and has from there on participated in solo and group exhibitions, in art spaces and galleries in Australia and abroad. He took part in artist residencies in Turkey, Germany and China, and has curated group shows in Melbourne, Venice, Perugia and Milan. His art practice is based on reflection upon architectural and landscape elements that define and distort perception on individual and collective uses of public space. Giordano works with the tensions between fictional and real environments, with special interest in the “veils” or filters that blur the nature of our experience or imagined landscapes.
