Vincenzo Fiore Marrese

Statement

I make art through research. I study the permanent instability of rules governing various aspects of life.

I combine technological and social issues with art. I’m working on topics like empathy in artificial intelligence, the minerals needed for the tech industry, and how age plays a role in grouping people in society.

I use different media, such as time-based art, installation art, and new media art.

I coined the terms subtle habitat and unstable component to depict space transformation like garages or courthouses into art environments with multiple independent artworks.

I want to preserve the intricacy of art. I also aim to make art more accessible to a broader audience by using appealing and thought-provoking artworks as talking points.

This appeal connects intellectual and emotional impact, fostering a more engaging and inclusive artistic experience.

©VFMarrese, In this picture, you can see an example of an immersive space I call subtle habitat. I made it in a former car workshop. The work is called “Critical Journey.”
©VFMarrese, In this picture I have highlighted what I call the unstable components of the subtle habitat. They are independent works of art, but the sum of them all makes up another work of art, the subtle habitat.
©VFMarrese, In this picture I have enlarged and highlighted one of the unstable components. It is called “Substitute.” The artwork incorporates earth from a piece by Rachel Harris, courtesy of the artist as part of a collaborative creative process.
©VFMarrese, In this picture you can see a detail of an unstable component of a subtle habitat I titled “Ich bin dreihunderttausend,” in other words “I am three thousand years old.” I used red crepe paper in an intriguing shape to use the visual pleasure as a bridge to the intellectual side of the artwork.
