Born in Cava de ‘Tirreni in 1973, he currently lives and works between Rome and London. In his works, Davide D’Elia proposes experiments on passing time. Between the contamination between different languages, from photography to complex multi-material installations, D’Elia reasons about the balance of power that governs the world around us, for example the interaction between atmospheric agents and objets d’art. His works often redefine the graphic terminology of modern aesthetics by presenting themselves beyond object and objectivity (which are nevertheless important symbols), which allows him to obtain a reasoning that examines the concepts of time and its unfolding.
His most popular work, exhibited in the Ex-elettrofonica gallery in Rome, is called Antivegetativa. D’Elia painted in blue at half height everything that was in a room. According to the artist, this work is an experience of passing time.
