Antonio Rovaldi (Parma, 1975) lives in Milano. He studied Art and Photography at the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milano, where he graduated in 2000 under the guidance of the Japanese artist Hidetoshi Nagasawa and the photographer Mario Cresci.
In 2006, he won the New York Prize at Columbia University, and in 2009 he was artist in residence at the ISCP in Brooklyn. Rovaldi wins Premio Otella in 2017. Institutional highlighted shows : Il suono del becco del picchio, GAMEC, Bérgamo, 2020; Give Me Yesterday, Fondazione Prada, Milano, 2016; Mi è scesa una nuvola, MAN Museum, Nuoro, 2015; The Opening Day, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC, 2012.
His artistic practice investigates the perception of the landscape through the use of various media, such as photography, video, sculpture and sound installation. A recurring element in his research is the representation of distance, both physical and mental, between real and literary places, collective spaces and autobiographical memories. The relationship between physical exertion – through the practice of walking or covering long distances by bike – and his investigation of a specific territory is a constant feature in his artistic practice.
