Published on the occasion of Alfredo Aceto's exhibition at Centre d'Art Contemporain, Genève, in 2015.
Alfredo Aceto (born 1991 in Turin, lives and works in Lausanne) is an artist working in painting, sculpture, drawing, and sound. Aceto has a singular approach, mixing personal anecdotes and art historical references. His obsessional relationship with French artist Sophie Calle
, for instance, ended with her signature tattooed on his arm. Such stories lay the groundwork for many of his projects that deal with obsession, time, memory, identity, and death.
Alfredo Aceto is graduated from ECAL
. His work has been shown at Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva; Musée Jenisch, Vevey; Kunsthaus Glarus; Cosmic Galerie (Bugada & Cargnel), Paris; Museo del 900, Milan; Peep-Hole, Milan. In 2015 he won the Kiefer Hablitzel National Prize.
