g. olmo stuppia SHORT CV PDF

g. olmo stuppia (born in '91 in Milan with deep Sicilian roots and a hybrid heritage from the islands), earned a Master's degree in Visual Arts from IUAV in 2017 in Venice with a full ESU Fellowship. Working as an author and contemporary artist since 2013, he primarily focuses on the flow of things, social structures, and islands. He expresses himself through texts, installations, poems, and experimental cinema. His profound interest centers around "deserted islands" and archaeology, particularly exploring the notion of time through languages of water cultures. Venice and Palermo serve as a counterpoint to the "nightmare of total illuminations." He received a Fellow at IUAV University AltroVe in 2019. In 2022, he was invited by the Public Program of the Italian Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia to create and produce "Sposare la notte." He was an invited artist at Poush Manifesto in 2021 in Paris. Since 2017, he founded Cassata Drone Expanded Archive, an international nonprofit platform aimed at triggering perspectives and producing content on the gaze of weapons (drones and AI) through cinema and the arts.He's artworks was exhibited in various Institutions including the Triennale di Milano, Fondazione Sandretto, INHA Paris, ArtCity24, and the Museo Riso in Palermo, among others. In 2024, he won the First Absolute Prize for Contemporary Art Veneto Region at Palazzo Balbi.

2018 - ongoing. Cassata Drone Expanded Archive (CDEA) is an  international, independent art platform conceived also as a solo performance.

2015 - ongoing #progettokoleos  is an exploration of advertisement "Padanias"  (north italian flate plane) as state of mind.

The emotional relationship with the Suv Low Medium Class (Renault Koleos) is delivered to the public in the form of performances and installation in site-specific chapters featuring among others Marco Barotti, Alexander Darkish.
