Mirco Marchelli

Born in Novi Ligure in 1963, Mirco Marchelli currently lives and works in Ovada, Italy.


Since the mid-Nineties, Marchelli developed in continuity with his musical studies a parallel research in visual arts.


Memory is the interpretative key of his work, along with the fascination of everyday objects such as rods of flags, old stools, small furniture, salvaged woods, second-hand books, boxes and photographs. Marchelli assembles these materials covering them with layers of wax in order to give them a new life and meaning. This practice provokes suggestions that bring people back to the past.


Since 1994, he has been invited to show his work in several solo and group exhibitions, both in Italy and Europe (Germany, France and Spain), including Galerie Sfeir Semler, Hamburg, 1998; Carte Blanche à Helene de Franchis, Galerie Lucien Durand Le Gaillard, Paris, 2000; Galerie Bäumler; Regensburg, 2001; Studio La Città, Verona, 2000 and 2003; Miquel Alzueta Gallery, Barcelona, 2005, 2007 and 2009.


In 2011 he was invited to participate at the 54th Venice Biennale, Italian Pavillion, curated by Luca Beatrice.


Among his recent solo shows: Stato, Participio Passato, Accademia Filarmonica, Casale Monferrato, 2011; Mezza bellezza, Marcorossi artecontemporanea, Milan and Pietrasanta, 2012; Scena muta per nuvole basse, Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, 2013; Via Crucis, Fondazione Lercaro, Bologna, 2014; Canzoni in levare, Museo Ettore Guatelli, Collecchio, 2016.


Since last year, Marchelli started to work with ceramic studios in Albissola and created a new series of sculptural artworks, titled Bella cera.


In 2018 the Marcorossi Artecontemporanea galleries in Milan and Verona dedicated an exhibition to these new works.
