Astral Noise
Franco Arcieri

Art Gallery of Mississauga, 2013

Sculpture, sound and performance are explored by Franco Arcieri in a rigorous yet playful manner. Cast as an archetype of sorts, covered in “granny squares” the artist intuitively explores the technical, conceptual and creative aspects of the unconscious. Interdisciplinary in thought, Arcieri is an example of a generation of artists who are natural thinkers with the cross fertilization of ideas, techniques and technologies of several recent pasts. Where do these archetypes come from?
