Adriano La Licata


Graduated in Fine Art in 2016

Education and Work Experience

I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo and The University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain. In 2016 I earned my Master of Fine Art from AKV|St.Joost in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.

My work takes shape as photographs, sculptures and performances. Charged with a playful and anarchist attitude, they embrace the viewer with an absurd outcome in which the order of the everyday is undermined and absurdities are revealed. The work transforms matter into spirit, presence into absence, and moves from concrete to magic. The soul destroys rationality and finally I achieve a position of being both creator and creation. I become a swimming pool of fun and fear. It's precisely in this space, between the hell I have inside and the bright project that is ahead, that the creative act comes to light. Moving as a shaman in the interstice between the madness and the wisdom, I abandon myself to any changes, any discoveries, or even any failures.
