STEFANO SCHEDA

Biography

Stefano Scheda born in Faenza in 1957, lives in Bologna where teaches “Strategia dell’Invenzione” (“Invention Strategy”) at the Academy of Fine Arts. His research is aimed at capturing the gaps of reality without altering its objective appearance rather exposing its frictions, the “somewhere else”. The ambiguity of real and illusory images is revealed in the works of the artist often evoking a sense of estrangement in the observer, as in the case of the photographic series that portray buildings dressed by vegetation or embracing the landscape in mirrored doors and windows. The mirror as a reflecting surface and the water, the sea, as an archetype of the threshold of life and death are recurrent elements in the research on the relationships between body, architecture and landscape. These connections, which the artist captures in image, reveal ways of speculation on the perception of reality and make its dialectical process visible.

The nude human body, devoid of erotic connotations, seizes corporeality as a combined spatial element, as an “image within the image”, in the same way as mirrors reflect what lies ahead. Stefano Scheda is the founder of “Marradi Campana Infesta”. The art event reaches its seventh edition in 2020. People of Marradi encounter the students of the Bologna Academy of Fine Arts, artists and thinkers invited to discuss different topics, maintaining an elective relationship with the marradese poet Dino Campana. Stefano Scheda took part in numerous national and international exhibitions in institutions such as Ghisla Art Collection, Locarno (2019); MAMbo, Bologna (2017); Palazzina Azzurra, San Benedetto del Tronto (2017, 2006); MART and Galleria Civica, Trento (2015, 2011);
