Here's the link to a recent interview by Careershifter.org that just came out.
It's never too late for a life change!
The universe... the desert... the fight against the machine... art and science intertwine in this autobiographical short-story on how a crazy night in the desert can change your life for good.
ASCENDING WHITE (2012)
Part of the project In Albis curated by Vittoria Biasi.
Two opposite forces: white as color of suffering, loneliness, alienation and white as a symbol of the experience of transcending the human condition, a symbol of the absence of pain... a white that ascends above itself. This video contrast these two forces through autobiographic imagery. Music by Jack White.

"A riveting new book, Pietro Reviglio’s Cinematography of Urban Madness questions the nature of real and imagined cinematic narratives in a visually stunning manner. The harsh lighting of an artist studio sets the tone for this short enigmatic work wherein autobiography meets fiction with violent overtones. Reviglio’s book is a quick read but densely populated with rich info, which makes a revisit compelling. Reviglio’s new book highlights the contemporary condition: fragmented and suspended in a world always already an image." (Jason Stopa, NY Arts)

The Gala Dinner
The day of the installation. Artists at work.
I've been invited to exhibit at the Regional (Piedmont) Pavilion of the Venice Biennial, curated by Vittorio Sgarbi and Sergio Anelli.
I chose a diptych from Cinematography of Urban Madness which I entitled "Death Scene". The exhibition was held in the beautiful halls of the Castiglia di Saluzzo. The exhibition will be extended through December 26 ;)
After its Italian debut in Turin, the exhibition Cinematography of Urban Madness traveled to New York, where it was shown at the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies of Columbia University. Prof. David Freedberg and Allison Jeffrey curated the exhibition. The initial one-month long exhibition turned into a six (!) month exhibition after being extended over summer.
The exhibition took place in the two main halls of the Academy, and in the movie theatre were we projected the video Cinematography of Urban Madness.
The exhibition Cinematography of Urban Madness debuted in Turin in January 2010 at the Weber&Weber Arte Contemporanea gallery, in the historic center of the city.
The installation comprised 14 photographs and the homonymous video. Here are some pictures of the exhibition. In the occasion of the opening we also presented the book Cinematography of Urban Madness, curated by Paola Gribaudo
In an attempt to catch up, here are some pictures of my installation at the Museum of Oriental Art in Turin for the Gemine Muse 2010 exhibition, sponsored among the others by the Italian Government. The exhibition curator was Maria Teresa Roberto. The other artists selected were the Aurorameccanica group and Cornelia Badelita.
The four large (180x60 cm) photographs were installed in the Zen Garden and are the bulk of the series entitled "The Weight of Time"
The photographs were lamba prints mounted on leger. The other artists were exhibiting painting and interactive video art in other wings of the museum.
Two more pictures of mine were on display in the Indian gallery describing the backstage of this project.
Thousands of visitors! And lots of press, including main newspapers La Stampa and Repubblica ;)
