Sicilian post-war and contemporary artist Vittorio Messina (b.1946), graduated from the Valle Giulia Faculty of Architecture in Rome, and his career incorporates a life-long interest in forms and materials linked with architecture. He is known for his striking installations, sculptures, and videos, and his work is often rooted in a space where the physical and the philosophical meet in cell-like constructions that are primarily formed from everyday objects that embody elusive and subtle uneasiness. His early training in architecture is seen in projects that reflect on the conditions, emotional as well as concrete, of urban life. This well-illustrated overview of his career is presented in three essays by noted art historians.
