  • About the artwork

    Giovanni Cocco's A che ora chiude Venezia (What Time Does Venice Close) shows quiet, empty corners of the city, where the human presence is absent, yet still perceivable.

    Cocco ponders over the fate of a city when its dwellers are leaving and its streets are taken over by tourists. The flow of visitors - 24 million a year, against a resident population of less than 53,000 people - threatens to forever change the fabric of the city. Empty corners become both a respite from the daily chaos and a reminder to its resident community - 1,000 of who leave each year - to invest in the life and survival of Venice.

Giovanni Cocco

Born in: 1973 Italy

Giovanni Cocco

Translation in progress

Giovanni Cocco (Sulmona, 1973) is a versatile visual artist and photographer. His images brim with edginess. Whether from the series "Burladies", where his camera paints the women of burlesque in hues of vibrant, almost exagerated splashes of color or from his newest series "Plantarium", where still lifes of plants sway with movement.

From 2013, Giovanni Cocco has turned his eye to the phenomenon of displacement, selecting a series of European cities which, as a phenomenon of capitalism, are emptying and depopulating . Beginning with Venice, in the series "A che ora chiude Venezia" the result is an observation of the beauty of these same sites, of its people, of architecture. Offering a suspended view of our reality that translates into deep conceptual shapes.

His work has been presented in installations and exhibitions worldwide, including Art Basel Scope Miami, ZonaMaco foto, Mexico City, MART – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento and Rovereto (Italy) and MACRO - Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome (Italy).
