About Paolo Repetto

Born in 1968 in Lavagna, Italy. His works deal with the empty place – the absence
and presence – which takes possession of all places built by man and for man;
abandoned places by means of an evocative interpretation become existential
sets. The author searches and attentively selects these sets which correspond
to his need for specific peculiarities. Once found, he begins his work as director
and artist and creates a stratification of the elements: vivid coloures, dimmed
red lighting, dark corners and hints of figures – they are almost ghost-like which
guide one from empty to full memories. However, his work needs one last step to
be alive and complete: The observer must make space between restlessness and
menacing uneasiness to completely realize the work with his personal interpretation.
