Marco Maria Zanin

Padua, IT

Influenced by an education in literature, psychology and philosophy, Marco Maria Zanin (b.1983 Italy) uses abstract, primitivistic sculptures to contemplate mythology, temporality, and the shared human experience. Frequent travels in Northern Italy, Portugal and Brazil provide subjects for Zanin, who seeks out periphery communities to learn of local traditions and find artefacts to inspire his sculptures. Photography is important to Zanin, as capturing his sculptures with a camera presents a new perspective on the three-dimensional forms and preserves the ephemeral objects for posterity.
