Swirling, incomprehensible patterns make reference to persistent themes of visual overload and the creative appropriation of chance finds.
Digitally generated vessel forms and applied imagery are sourced from scanning and reworking the abundant, bewildering stuff that is readily to hand.
Chance destabilises authorship and the elusive pursuit of an aesthetic ideal, shifting focus to challenges of crafting unfamiliar materials and a perpetual Work in Process.
With an established studio practice in Brighton, Stefano Santilli exhibits work and lectures internationally.
This is project #8 of Dorset Place x 11 collaborations – a new series of projects and work responding to the university as a site for experimentation and learning. Admission is free and open to all.
Dorset Place is Brighton CCA’s project space and hosts a series of short projects and exhibitions by emerging artists, organisations, curators and students. With a fast changing programme, the space is an exciting platform for experimentation, collaboration and engagement with new ideas and voices. Dorset Place allows us to be responsive, initiating and supporting projects which stand alone or connect to our wider programme. The space is offered free of charge with curatorial, marketing and limited technical support.
