Piano Alto was a project held in the heart of Berlin, in a place that was both public and private, and to which artists and guests were invited by post without any hint of the location being given on-line.
In a conversation with Elena Quarestani, Flavio de Marco had discussed the idea of an artificial island on an Asian land. The island was modelled on another island already described by Flavio in his book ‘Stella’.
Flavio de Marco (Lecce, 1975) is a painter. Many of his projects contemplate the virtual windows through which artists observe the contemporary world. He has held many exhibitions in Institutions in Italy and abroad. He was lecturer in “extramedia techniques” at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. In 2010 he founded an independent magazine, Rivisita, and in 2013 he published his first book, Stella, which accompanied the exhibition of the same name held at the GAM in Rome. He lives and works in Berlin. www.flaviodemarco.net
