Our work Recipients from Italy 2003
Since 2003 the Alcorso Foundation has provided funding in partnership with Ten Days on the Island to bring Italian artists to Tasmania on a biennial basis.
2003 / ANDREA MORUCCHIO
Andrea Morucchio is a contemporary multi-disciplined artist living and working in Venice.
Arriving in Hobart in December 2002 to undertake a three-month residency at the Tasmanian School of Art he responded strongly to Tasmania's nature and open spaces that inspired a desire to create a work that evoked a deep spiritual connection with nature and place.
The resulting work, Eidetic Bush was a video installation at the Plimsoll Gallery, Centre for the Arts.
Andrea's work tests and extends our understanding of place and nature exploring mystery and dynamism of the human creative impulse.
Andrea took part in the Ten Days On The Island Festival with an exhibit of his glass points Percer-voir spectacularly displayed under lights in the pond of the Royal Botanical Gardens. Andrea also exhibited at the Despard Gallery Isola Luminosa and Cuba 95
Andrea made many friends in Hobart sharing much of his time with members of Tasmania's Italian community and meeting with the Italian Consulate General during his visit to Tasmania.
