About

Michele Bazzoli (b. 1996, IT) currently lives and works in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.

In his practice he mainly works with sculpture and installation, where he uses the medium’s technical and aestethic aspects to explore different perspectives of growth and decay. To him, growth and decay are the main agent forces that shape the contemporary world, and their paradoxical co-presence means a transition leading towards a yet uncertain state of things; either catastrophic or harmonious.
