  • About the Artist
  • Bibliography

Sandro Scarmiglia was born in Rome on 12/12/1964 and graduated in painting at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in 1990. In the same year, he begins his collaboration as an assistant designer for television programs on Rai and Fininvest. With the same qualification in 1996, he landed in cinema with the film “LUNA E L’ALTRA” by M. Nichetti. As a scenographer he collaborates to the realization of great events and conventions, later he signs scenes and costumes for theatrical performances including Hard Love by M. Lerner directed by Roberto Silvestri and Aria Nova by Pierpaolo Palladino with the direction of B. Maccallini. With A.m.r.e.f. and Dulcimer he participates to a humanitarian project project for poor children in Nairobi organizing the show “Mgona mtaani” which debuts in Italy at Umbria jazz in 2009. Parallel to his professional career as a scenographer, he has always kept alive his deep interest for plastic research, finally arriving to sculpture.

"The main feature of the sculpture is its “multisense”, where the tactile element finds its expressiveness in the relationship between form, surface and environment. In my work, it translates into elementary materiality. At first glance, it is evident that I am inspired by primordial art but in specific, I don’t know to which I belong. So I ask to myself: where does the border between abstraction and empathy of forms begins? Every time I try to create a plastic-shaped work, I say to myself: “simple, pure, and essential!” In fact, in my forms I recognize myself and I find a great satisfaction only when “I take away” as much as possible. Yes! Organic forms with the characteristic of “never closed containers”, blisters, tubes, tubers that contain, but also expand breaths. Ever changing Sprouts, cavities that build sounds, and maybe, one day they will be able to compose melodies. When I think of these forms, I am not interested in sculpture as a unique object by itself, but able to stand among others: in a Group, in a Community. I live side by side with my forms in my studio where I work and every time I change their place, and the whole habitat changes again, the way of relating within it, is transformed, the dialogues diverge between the various forms, endlessly playing as a continuous change of roles...
Sometimes in my installations, there is a different figure from the others, partly autonomous and someway enigmatic and the other figures are placed in a choral semicircle, as to suggest perplexity, curiosity and in the same way the willingness to welcome. Will it ever be possible? Everything is still in progress!"
