Francesco Vizzini (b. Switzerland)
From my experience of the complacency with oppressive mafia violence in Sicily in the 1990s I make art works today that puncture the viewer with a touching awakening to the deficiancy of capitalist technological progress. Through photography, video, and assemblage I explore how instability and the manipulation of vision can influence perception. My work speaks to power and control in conversation with bodies, objects and landscapes.
Education: Graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts of Catania, Italy, 2000.
Francesco Vizzini was chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #2 of the 2013 ArtSlant Showcase series.
