Massimo GUERRERA



Massimo Guerrera was born in Rome in 1967. He is living and working in Montréal.

His works have been shown in many exhibitions and group events, such as Artifices I in 1996, as well as Artifices II and the Salon de l'agglomérat in 1998. The same year, he presented several solo exhibitions and a series of performances on the subjectof the borders between public and private environments. He also put together the exhibition Porus at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery in Concordia University in 1999. Massimo Guerrera was part of La Biennale de Montréal 2000, curated by Peggy Gale. He has received many grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and his works can be found in the collections of the Canada Council Artbank, the Musée du Québec as well as in several private collections. Moreover, he has received the Prix Ozias Leduc in 2001.

Developing environements that promote meeting and sharing, Massimo Guerrera falls within a performance practice that can be qualified as relational, focused on the possibilities provided by the experiences of the body, food and reflection they raise in our consumer society. In his exhibitions, objects become meaningful through their dreamlike power and their reference to stratling relations that they conjure. Interpersonal sharing as well as the circulation of food provide the artist with fertile fields of exploration, strongly tainted by current concerns on the odd experience of daily living. Massimo Guerrera is represented by the Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montréal.
