Filippo Armellin

Filippo Armellin was born in Montebelluna (province of Treviso) in 1982, he lives and works in Milan. After graduating in Design and Visual Arts Production at the Design and Art department at IUAV, in 2010 he graduated in Photography at the R. Bauer Institute in Milan. In 2007 he moved to Rome, where he worked with artist Joseph Kosuth. During this experience he collaborated in the design and production of various international art exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale, Capitoline Museums in Rome, La Casa Encendida in Madrid, El Centro Atlantica and Modern Art in Las Palmas (Canary Islands). In his photographs the natural subjects appear untouched; but actually the fascinating landscapes are completely realized in studio, through the use of backdrops and models produced with materials such as paper and metal painted with acrylic colors. The artist patiently constructs models of leaves, plants, stones that he uses to create photographic sets, which are capable of overwhelming the viewer with their infinite horizon. In 2016 he was selected among the finalists of the XVII Cairo Prize.

From 2006 he has participated in group shows in institutions such as: Fondazione Francesco Fabbri, Treviso (2018, 2014), Palazzo Reale, Milan (2017), PAN | Palazzo delle Arti, Naples (2013), Documenta, Kassel (2012), Palazzo delle Terese, Venice (2008), Bevilacqua la Masa Foundation, Venice (2007).

His collaboration with Galleria Fumagalli begins in 2018.
