Giovanni Ozzola’s photographs emerge from intuitions, from precise moments that have left a trace in his memory. Images of the real and imagined images overlay one another. The horizon is far off, unattainable, frightening and exciting. The waves of the sea stand out against the uniform sky. Eternity and the instant fuse together along with the dividing line between the sky and the sea, generating a feeling of the Sublime.
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).
