Marco Barotti

Multimedia artist

(Italy, 1979)

Marco Barotti is a Berlin-based multimedia artist who, after studying music at the Siena Jazz Academy, began fusing sound and visual art. This artist’s practice is fueled by the desire to invent an artistic language that, through kinetic sound interventions in natural and urban environments, speaks to us of a fictional post-futurist era. Barotti’s installations combine sound technology, consumer objects and waste to create mobile sculptures powered entirely by sound. The main objective of his work is to create a “technological ecosystem” that, playing with animal similarities, establishes a metaphor for the anthropogenic impact on the planet and aims to raise people’s awareness of environmental problems.

Marco Barotti has exhibited his works at Ars Electronica (Linz) Wro Art Center (Wroclaw) NGBK Gallery (Berlin), Saatchi Gallery (London), Würth Museum (La Rioja) Futurium (Berlin), Polytech Festival (Moscow), Emaf (Osnabrück ), Fact (Liverpool), Lisboa Soa (Lisbon), Nuit Blanche (Brussels), Platoon (Mexico City), Urban Lights Ruhr (Hamm) and the List í Ljósi Light Festival (Iceland)
