Diego Perrone, one of the most significant artist in national and international scene, exhibits his works in many of the major museums in the world, including the MAXXI in Rome, Museion in Bolzano, the Guggenheim in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
He participated at the 53rd Venice Biennale – The Encyclopedic Palace, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, at the 4th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, at the 11th Triennale India, Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art in 2005, Moscow, and at the 50th Venice Biennale – the Zone, always curated by Massimiliano Gioni.

His research follows the line between dream dimension and tangible reality, between what actually exists and what exists only as a possibility.
His work reinterprets the themes of popular culture and reinvents traditional icons, the evocation of what is “behind” the ordinary, the effort to understand and acquire the thought processes that have seemingly no concreteness or representation.

A month after his arrival in Friuli, Thursday, July 2nd from 18.00 to 20.00, at Casa Cavazzini Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Udine, Diego Perrone will meet the public in a dialogue with the art and architecture historian Valentina Sonzogni and the philosopher Leonardo Caffo.

The RAVE project promotes research, production, dialogue and dissemination of contemporary art, emphasizing in this context the antispecisms thought in an innovative and experimental art project.
The Residence takes place therefore in a place where animals live, through actions of the artist Tiziana Pers, were saved from the slaughterhouse and taken from their consumerist mechanisms to be welcomed and cared in a more natural contest.
This year the residency takes place therefore in the historic village of Soleschiano, in Manzano, near Udine. The old stable of the old farmhouse comes alive with meetings and workshops, while in grass surrounding will live a donkey and a dwarf goat, the two protagonists nonhuman saved for the 2015 edition.
Perrone, the artist-in-residence and all the other guests, which include artists, art critics, philosophers, journalists, architects and volunteers, will relate with the two animals in order to offer a different perspective which point basis for new dialogue between art and culture and thought biocentric.
