Quayola (b. 1982, Italy) creates hybrid spaces of animated painting and sculpture. Regarded for his enigmatic video installations and based in the UK, he was trained at the University of the Arts London. Engaging a practice of audio-visual performance, drawing, photography and software programming, Quayola explores a fine boundary located between the real and artificial.
The very first solo exhibitions of Quayola’s work opened at bitforms gallery in May 2012 in New York and at Young Projects Gallery in March 2012 in Los Angeles. Past displays have included a 54th Venice Biennale project at the Italian Cultural Institute in London and group exhibitions at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the British Film Institute, London; Gaîté Lyrique, Paris; Palais des Beaux Arts, Lille; Grand Theatre, Bordeaux; Church of Saint Eustache, Paris; Forum des Image, Paris; Centro Cultural Recoleta, Buenos Aires; Park Avenue Armory, New York; EMPAC Centre, New York; Yota Space, St. Petersburg; MIS, São Paulo; Casa Franca, Rio de Janeiro; and BAC Center d’Art Contemporain, Geneva; as well as festivals such as Sonar, Barcelona; STRP, Eindoven; Cimatics, Brussels; onedotzero, London; Elekra, Montreal; and the Clermont Ferrand Film Festival, among others.
