Edoardo Tresoldi explores the poetics of the dialogue between human beings and the landscape, using the language of architecture as an expressive tool and as a key to reading space. The artist plays with the transparency of wire mesh to transcend the spatiotemporal dimension and narrate a dialogue between art and the world, a visual synthesis revealed in the fading of the physical boundaries of his works.

Born in Milan, Tresoldi moved to Rome after art school, working in the fields of sculpture, stage design and the cinema, where he developed a heterogeneous approach to the arts. The sculptor recognized the contrasts of the contemporary landscape as his Genius Loci and identified the cross-fertilization of ideas and influences as the founding principle of his work.

Since 2013 he has produced installations in public spaces, archaeological sites, festivals and exhibitions around the world. In 2016, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Culture, he realized a work for the archaeological site of the Early Christian basilica of Siponto, a unique convergence between contemporary art and archaeology that was awarded the Gold Medal for Italian Architecture.

In 2018 the artist produced “Etherea” for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the USA. In 2019 he presented “Simbiosi” in the prestigious context of Arte Sella and founded STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO, an interdisciplinary lab that supports artists, public art projects and contemporary art production. In 2020 he inaugurated a permanent installation called “Opera” in Reggio Calabria, Italy.

Edoardo Tresoldi indaga le poetiche del dialogo tra uomo e paesaggio utilizzando il linguaggio architettonico come strumento espressivo e chiave di lettura dello spazio. L'artista gioca con la trasparenza della rete metallica per trascendere la dimensione spazio-temporale e narrare un dialogo tra Arte e Mondo, una sintesi visiva che si rivela nella dissolvenza dei limiti fisici delle sue opere.

Nato a Milano, dopo gli studi artistici si trasferisce a Roma dove lavora nel campo della scultura, della scenografia e del cinema, ambiti che gli forniscono una visione eterogenea delle arti. Nei contrasti del paesaggio contemporaneo lo scultore riconosce il suo Genius Loci di appartenenza e individua nella contaminazione il principio fondante del suo lavoro.

Dal 2013 realizza installazioni in spazi pubblici, contesti archeologici, festival e mostre in tutto il mondo. Nel 2016 realizza, in collaborazione con il MiBACT, l'intervento autoriale nello scavo archeologico della Basilica paleocristiana di Siponto, convergenza unica tra arte contemporanea e archeologia premiata con la Medaglia d’Oro all’Architettura Italiana.

Nel 2018 realizza "Etherea" per il Coachella Music and Arts Festival negli USA. Nel 2019 presenta "Simbiosi" per il prestigioso contesto di Arte Sella e fonda STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO, laboratorio interdisciplinare a sostegno di artisti, progetti di arte pubblica e produzioni di arte contemporanea. Nel 2020 inaugura l’installazione permanente "Opera" a Reggio Calabria.
