Antonello Matarazzo

Ballad of Hypochondria
Antonello Matarazzo, painter and video artist. His work takes place in the most recent tendency called “Medialismo”, intended to integrate different media (photo, picture, video et.). Since 2000, year of his debut video, The Fable (18° Bellaria Film Festival) – a short film produced by Rai 3 – he has combined moving pictures with still ones, shifting from film-making to paintings and taking part in many national and international festivals (Mostra Cinematografica di Venezia, Festival Cinéma Méditerranéen Montpellier, Torino Film Festival, Festival des Cinémas Différents de Paris, Invideo, Locarno ecc.) some of them like Festival Internacional de Cine de Mar del Plata and Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema of Pesaro and Signes de Nuit in Parigi have proposed whole retrospectives of his works. The core of his research is based on the ambiguity between still image and moving (often giving the micro photographic images through morphing techniques) but the link between painting, video and video installations is the marked inclination to explore introspective and anthropological aspects of human. This feature of his work means that in many universities, such as Brera, Roma 1, Chieti, Genova, Salerno, Pisa and Cambridge, his works are shown as an educational tool in seminars and workshops. His work was showed in 2009 and 2011 editions of the Venice Biennale.
