MARCO BRAMBILLA

VIDEO INSTALLATION ARTIST

Marco Brambilla

London-based artist/filmmaker Marco Brambilla repurposes and recontextualizes the imagery of popular culture within complex and painterly video collages.

Emerging as an internationally exhibited video and installation artist after transitioning from commercial filmmaking, Brambilla is known for his technically ambitious approach to video production and editing. He has created pioneering 3-D works that push the bounds of new technologies, conflating past, present, and future in a fluid stream of consciousness. Brambilla’s films explore ideas of physical displacement and the psychological dislocation of the digital world, in which familiar characters are completely transformed within new contexts.

Brambilla’s work has been internationally exhibited and is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum (New York); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; ARCO Foundation (Madrid); and the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington DC).

He is a recipient of the Tiffany Comfort Foundation and Tiffany Colbert Foundation awards. His work has been featured at the Venice Film Festival and Sundance Film Festivals, as well as Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland.

“The music of Pelléas et Mélisande has always conjured up images of the cosmos in my head. Since the text deals with the recurring theme of the eyes and sight, the set design becomes a portal into the subconscious where my videos unfold and heighten the tension and drama unfolding onstage.”

"Marco Brambilla's mythical mission combines the memory and romance of past space travel with the frightening velocity of the rocket and the futuristic landscapes of new, undiscovered territories. Only in Times Square can one recreate the scale and magnitude of such an experience.”

“I'm very obsessed with the energy of New York and the idea of the way people behave in the city versus the way they behave in a natural environment. That inspired me to find a way to visualize Central Park in a different way.”

“I see his work as a sort of tapestry, weaving together so much visual information. ‘Evolution’ is only a few minutes long, but it has so many layers of meaning you can see it over and over again. Your sense of time is totally different — you never see enough.”

“No one man should have all that power: I’m interpreting that idea as a moment of transition, showing an icon of power at the tipping point. The idea of celebrity, sexuality, and excess… the psychological toll that can take on an individual.”

“The piece isn't a literal relationship between the brand and watches—it's very abstract. Watches of Switzerland were very open to having a standard art piece that doesn't really necessarily tie into the watches or the brand, but rather reflects some of the aesthetics of the brand.”

“I wanted to capture the sense of being on the very threshold of the limits of control – the feeling of euphoria and danger which are equally present in the mental state of a driver during a race.”
