Marcello Maloberti (born 1966 in Codogno) is a visual artist based in Milan. Subtle aspects of marginalized urban experience inspire his practice, and he pays particular attention to the shapelessness and uncertainty of daily life. His artistic vision goes beyond the immediacy of the everyday and offers a neorealist glance, dreamlike and alienating, that combines an archaeological approach toward art history. His performances and installations, situated in both private and public spaces, have a strong dramatic impact that always encourages audience interaction. These installations generate brief narratives and lived-in atmospheres with distinct emotional temperatures. His real-time objective is one of collectivity, producing dialogue between the performance itself and its audience. In recent years Maloberti has given greater emphasis to the duality of art and life by means of a variety of visual and sound-based languages; photography, video, performance, installation, sculpture, and collage are always enriched by a strong performative dimension.
