Federico Zurani is an Italian-Albanian artist. He graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara with a thesis on the relationship between early medieval illuminated painting and the painting of the historical avant-gardes: “MIDDLE AGES AND AVANT-GARDE. ELECTIVE AFFINITIES, BETWEEN ABSTRACTION AND SPIRITUALISM: “. Later he studied and graduated to become a 3D generalist at IMasterArt.
His research concerns the narratives that underlie the images and therefore the fascination they can provoke. In particular, he studies the relationship between image and narration in the landscape. His artistic practice embraces different mediums and disciplines: from oil painting, to multimedia installations to the creation of content through videogame technologies and artificial intelligences. He collaborates with Bronzo Studio (a collective of architects and artists based in Genoa) with whom he produced a multimedia installation exhibited in 2021 at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa (Sirotti Reboot). He also collaborates with Mefistofele Documenta, a collective with which he organized happenings and experimental performances for Pinksummer Gallery and various festivals and theaters in Italy (Vuoto al centro del monte, MoyocoYazin and others).
He started a collaboration with the Italian-Swedish composer Timoteo Carbone, together they participated in the ReWire festival and the Dag in de Branding at The Hague in the Netherlands, the CodeWar exhibition at the Castello D’Albertis in Genoa and are planning other events in the coming months ( among the projects realized together with Rupestre and Sound in Abandoned Space II).
