Federico Pepe was born in Omegna (VB) in 1976. He now lives in Milan with Stefania, Violetta and Antonio Tranquillo. He moves with ease and equal energy from drawing to photography, from animation to performance, from sculpture to whatever else can convey his exuberant creative vein. He is the creator of Le Dictateur, an extreme editorial project, realised with the collaboration of his friend photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, in which well-known artists and unpublished authors have been involved in the context of absolute freedom of expression.
On show are excerpts from SINFLEX, an open project that Federico Pepe has been working on for some time. A video installation accompanied by a sound creation by Wang Inc. and composed of two large projections facing each other: an animation and a film documenting a performance by the artist in the company of a multitude of leeches. Twelve large-format drawings. Two installations.
