Leaves and flower petals at their peak of blooming fall to carpet the tarmac as they reach the end of their life cycle. It is a modern vanitas, that meditates on the transience of life and the ephemeral nature of beauty, but also on the uninterrupted mingling of natural and artificial elements.
Born in 1982 in Florence, Giovanni Ozzola lives and works in Canary Islands. He is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in photography, as well as video and sculptural installation. Ozzola’s practice demonstrates a deep sensitivity towards the phenomenon of light and its various physical characteristics. His main thematic interests lie in conceptualising and representing infinitude and exploration, both geographical and introspective. A selection of his most recent solo shows includes “If I Had to Explain, You Wouldn't Understand” (Fosun Foundation Shanghai, 2019); “Algo Tuyo y Mío” (Centro Foundacion UNICAJA, Malaga 2018 and Almeria 2019); “Rutas de Sangre” (Claustros del convento de San Francisco de Asis, Basilica Menor, Havana, 2018); "Relitti e camere con stelle", curated by Davide Ferri (Untitled Association- Lynchen, Berlin, 2017); “Adrift” (District 6 Museum, Cape Town, 2016). Among the most recent group shows, “Kronos e Kairos” (Foro Romano e Palatino, Parco Archeologico del Colosseo, Rome, 2019); “Recto Verso” (Foundation Louis Vuitton, Paris, 2018); “Insights” (Shanghai Exhibition Centre, Shanghai, 2018); "Sculpture Projects Pingyao" (Pingyao Diesel Engine Site, Shanghai, 2018); “Mostra Premio Cairo” (Palazzo Reale, Milan, 2017); “LANDSEASKY: Revisiting Spatiality in Video Art”, curated by Kim Machan (tour exhibition: MAAP, Seoul, 2014).
