Simone Bertuzzi (b. 1983) and Simone Trabucchi (b. 1982) have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. Although their work focuses primarily on the moving image and sound, they also integrate sculpture, performance and publishing into their practice. Invernomuto explores what remain of subcultures by moving through different media. Observed through unashamedly affected eyes, oral cultures and minor histories are laid open, their vernacular forms examined. Inauthentic materials play a fundamental role within this process, emphasizing the fictitious realities that inspire them. Bertuzzi and Trabucchi have developed individual lines of research into sound with the outlets Palm Wine and STILL, respectively. Currently Invernomuto are developing a new commission for the 2020 Liverpool Biennial and the 58th October Salon-Belgrade Biennial 2020. Another project, Black Med, was conceived in 2018 for Manifesta 12 (Palermo) and has recently been part of the performance programme at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019; Black Med will be further developed in 2020 with Fondazione Morra Greco (Naples). Recent solo shows include Prima Delle Sabbie, Galleria Nazionale, Rome (2019), NN Contemporary Art, Northampton (2019), MED T-1000, Pinksummer, Genoa (2019), Leto Gallery, Warsaw (2019), Artspeak, Vancouver (2015), Anabasis Articulata, Triennale di Milano, Milan (2014), Marsèlleria, Milan (2014) and I-Ration, ar/ge kunst, Bozen (2014).
