Venice - May 29th, 30th and 31st, 2013
The innate inclination to do stupid things is quintessentially a human prerogative. And I am a guy. I was born in Gorizia on September 30th, 1982. In 2001 I graduated from the Max Fabiani Art School in Gorizia. I graduated with highest honors in 2010 from the Venice Academy of Fine Arts under the tutelage of Professor Carlo Di Raco, the same school where I am currently enrolled in the postgraduate painting program.

I like going to the supermarket because I can find everything I need there. I think it is the place that has the most influence on my art. I was born in Latina in 1986. I studied music for 8 years and after getting my high school diploma in the arts I enrolled at the Visual and Performing Arts Faculty of IUAV University of Venice. In 2012 I was awarded a yearlong residency at the atelier of the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation in Venice.
As a kid I broke everything, as an adult I want to put things back together. I was born in on August 18th, 1985. In 2009 I received my undergraduate degree from the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, and in 2010 I studied at Middlesex University in London as part of the Erasmus program. I am currently doing my second year of the postgraduate program at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts.
Everybody called me nibbler. I was born in Trento on November 26th, 1989 and grew up in Cembra (Val di Cembra). I studied at the Alessandro Vittoria Art School in Trento and am currently doing my fifth year of the painting program run by Carlo Di Raco and Martino Scavezzon at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts.
When I was little I asked my parents for a set of drums, but they gave me a guitar. Other than that, everything else is fine. I was born in Asiago on July 20th, 1988 and grew up in Villaverla (Vicenza). I studied at the Boscardin Art School in Vicenza and now am doing my fifth year of the painting program run by Di Raco at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts. From 2009 to 2012 I participated in the summer workshops at Forte Marghera run by Carlo Di Raco and Martino Scavezzon.
As a kid when I had to take a bath I would run away, break out in tears and scream with fear, but now… it’s still all the same. I was born in Gorizia on January 25th, 1988. In 2012 I received my undergraduate degree in painting from the Venice Academy of Fine Arts.
I am clumsy. Every time I move, I knock something over. I was born in Gjakova, Kosovo, on March 5th, 1990. In 2013 I received my undergraduate degree in painting from the Venice Academy of Fine Arts. I am currently enrolled in the first year of the postgraduate painting program at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts.
I will lie on great occasions, in case of an emergency of irrepressible narcissism. I was born in Turin in 1986. I studied at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin and at the Kuvataideakatemia in Helsinki as part of the Unicredit Passaporto residency prize. I graduated in 2012 in visual art design and production from IUAV of Venice. In 2012 I was awarded a studio at the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation.
I never know what to say when people ask me what I do: I would have liked to have been a pianist. I was born in Lecco in 1980. While studying piano at the music schools of Como and Castelfranco Veneto (2004-09) I earned my undergraduate degree from the Accademia Carrara of Bergamo (2006) and a postgraduate degree from IUAV of Venice (2010). I have worked as an assistant for artists such as Pascale Marthine Tayou (2009), Nan Goldin (2010) and Alberto Garutti (2011-2013). I have done artistic residencies with Luca Vitone (2009) and Benjamin Weil (2010) at the Spinola Banna Art Foundation in Poirino and have been awarded a studio at the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation in Venice (2010).
When working in art, all time is free time or, better yet, time isn’t free anymore. I was born in Milan in 1986. I graduated in 2009 from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. Afterwards I lived in Berlin for two years and then moved to Venice where I received my postgraduate degree in visual art design and production from IUAV University of Venice in 2013.
Where do all the Venetian artists hide during the Biennale? Once every two years, when their city takes center stage in the world of contemporary art, local artists are, ironically, nowhere to be seen, seemingly eclipsed by the big international names. Together with Crepaccio, a Milan showcase for emerging artists, yoox.com is disembarking in Venice to bring ten young talents into the global spotlight. Il Padiglione Crepaccio at yoox.com is a unique pavilion curated by Caroline Corbetta that incorporates two exhibitions in synergy: one physical, in Venice in the three days leading up to the festival (May 29th - 31st), and one virtual, on yoox.com, where, for the duration of the Biennale (May 29th - November 24th), pieces can be purchased online. The exhibition will take place in the beautiful Ca' Soranzo, residence of some of the artists, to allow visitors to enjoy their art in a relaxed and genuine atmosphere. On yoox.com all the works on show at Ca' Soranzo, plus further information and details on the artists, will be accessible by millions around the world.
