(*) OPERE DISPONIBILI 

Christian Fogarolli nasce a Trento nel 1983, dove vive e lavora. Si laurea in Scienze dei Beni Culturali presso l'Università degli Studi di Trento nel 2007. Nel 2009 si trasferisce a Verona, dove frequenta il master Inside the Image: studio, diagnosi e restauro di dipinti antichi e moderni. Nel 2011 ottiene la laurea specialistica in Conservazione dei Beni Culturali presso l'Università degli Studi di Trento. Nel 2008 comincia la sua produzione artistica, che si caratterizza per l'utilizzo di diverse forme espressive. Nel 2012 viene invitato ad esporre il progetto Lost Identities a dOCUMENTA (13) e al museo Mart di Rovereto.

Il percorso di Christian Fogarolli si caratterizza da un marcato interesse verso la natura dell’identità, analizzata da diverse prospettive tra cui la ricerca d’archivio. I lavori si situano in un contesto di analisi relativa alle dinamiche della percezione dell’immagine in rapporto alla soggettività, sondano i legami con l’anormalità e la devianza, ponendo interrogativi sul patrimonio di immagini di cui disponiamo e sull’uso a cui lo destiniamo.

(*) AVAILABLE WORKS

Christian Fogarolli was born in Trento in 1983 where he lives and works. Graduated in Cultural Heritage Studies in 2007 at the University of Trento, he moved to Verona in 2009, where, the following year, he obtained the Master's degree Inside the image: study, diagnosis and restoration of antique, modern and contemporary paintings. In 2011 he obtained a degree in History and Conservation of Historical and Artistic Heritage at the University of Trento. Since 2008 he has embarked on an artistic journey characterized by the use of different forms of expression, exhibiting both in Italy and abroad. In 2012 he exhibited the project Lost Identities at dOCUMENTA (13) and at Mart Museum of Rovereto.

The research of Christian Fogarolli is characterized by a strong interest in the nature of identity, particularly investigated through different perspectives, such as the archival research. The artworks can be contextualized within a study on image perception in relation to subjectivity, probing ties with the abnormality and deviance. They pose questions about the abundance of images that we have and the use we offer them.
