Sergio Fermariello

(Naples, 1961)

His research starts from the recovery of the models and family memories that extend to a deeper research on the recovery of an unconscious collective memory. He is also present in some major international events such as the exhibition at the International Metropolis Kunstausstellung in Berlin in 1991 and the exhibition Les pictographes at the Musée de l'Abbaye Sainte-Croix-Les Sables d'Olonne, where Didier Ottinger invited him to present his work together with paintings of Klee, Mirò, Picasso, Penck, Sanejouand. In 1993 he was called by Achille Bonito Oliva to take part in the forty-fifth Venice Biennale with a solo exhibition room at the Italian Pavilion. In 1995 he exhibits some work of a three-dimensional nature in the show Alchemical Opus at the Galleria Arco in Turin. These works are halfway between painting and sculpture and constitute a further step in the young artist's career. Lives and works in Naples.
