Iacopo Seri (b. 1983, Arezzo, Italy) lives in Naples, Italy. After completing his MA in Visual Arts at IUAV, University of Architecture in Venice, Italy, Seri lived in Germany, Mexico, and Canada. His practice revolves around revelations, signs and the ‘living myths’ (a concept borrowed from American mythologist Joseph Campbell) concealed within people’s commonplace habits. By making use of performative activities, language, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and tangible and intangible imagery, Seri seeks to transform commonplace actions into vehicles for unconventional understanding. Through his work, Seri examines the mystery of our currently developing humanity.
