Maurizio Vetrugno

Born in Sant’Antonino di Susa in 1957, he lives and works in Turin.

In the poetry of Maurizio Vetrugno there are objects, embroidery, paintings, installations, videos, sculptures, “detectors” of – through the artist’s interpolation – the way that everything connects with everything.

Suggestions all coming from areas far away: the punk-rock world, religion, blasphemy, mathematics, sociology, which are combined in a great game of aesthetic and semantic relations, conducted with the delicate and light hand of Maurizio Vetrugno.
