RESIDENCY MARCO BRUZZONE (ITA/GER)
Marco Bruzzone (1974, ITA/GER) is Hordaland Art Centre's resident June 2010
He describes his works as interdisciplinary, and much of his art is invisible or not shown in public at all. His practice consists of discussions, curating, collaborating, cooking and teaching, which does not make for consistency and prescribed logic, easy statements or heroism.
During his residency he will create a new set of sculptures based on the place and new relationships, and do research for possible future invitations to artists to participate in his exhibition making practice.
