Alberto Salvetti Artist Bio:
Alberto Salvetti was born in 1974 , in 1998 he attended the sculpture and painting classes at the Complutense Academy of Madrid and in 2001 he graduated with the best results from the Fine Arts Academy in Venice. During his frequent travels to Buenos Aires, he met numerous masters who influenced his artistic career such as Nicolas Garcia Uriburu and Luis Benedit. During the first years of 2000 he contributed with Carolyn Carlson first in tribute to Beuys, and the Chinese sculptor masters of the Cai Guo Quiang School after, to a Biennale work in Venice. As missed forester, Alberto Salvetti has always been linked to the natural world; his artistic researches investigate the history and the medium-environment that host him: some of his works are visible at the 1 Army Museum at the Pasubio Military Memorial, at the Naturalistic Museum in Montecchio Maggiore, at the AMCPS (municipal utilities and environment office) in Vicenza and in other few Vicenza Sanitary Sites. In 2005 he won the contest: “Art societies: the roundabouts between esthetics and the promotion of the territory”, where he conceives a roundabouts as a motorway restaurant for vegetable species and autochthonous animals. In collaboration with the Sanitary District n. 6 of Vicenza, for several years he was the artistic referent of the Artelabio Project, a project opened to the town that offered theater and sculpture laboratories for psychophysics disabled people thus offering free and social integration moments for the art lovers. Over the past few years he presented unique installation as “Aironi Bianchi” Withe Herons (8 figures in plastic wrap); “Il fiume” The river (where he released alive lures into trash cans he transformed in aquariums) or Chiavenna Larus Lurido, an installation with seagulls ( 17 gulls, made of newspapers reporting news on oil spill, were covered with real oil). The performances see him more and more involved with animals that he always loved and considered as “messengers of another spirituality”. Among them worth mentioning “Il sogno del Giaciglio” Deaming in a pallet created for Festa Ambiente in the town of Vicenza in 2011( in this occasion, covered with mud from the early morning up to the late evening, he built, with mud and hay, the animals of a Park); “Il canto dell’Angelo” The Angel sing in the Bosco delle Cascate ( the Waterfall Wood) in Calvene ( where, as a winged human being, he closed himself for 8 hours in a bird cage); “Il volto di una gabbia” The face of a cage, created for “The night of the homeless” in Piazza delle Poste in Vicenza ( in this occasion he gave up publicly on his own image); “Un altro sguardo”A different look with Carlo Presotto at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza ( where he took for a walk around town a 60 kilos deer made of cement); “Schiavo regolare offresi” A steady slave for sale at the ancient local fair of Grisignano di Zocco and, in the past month of June, at the LIBEREPERSONELIBERE by Anna Caterina Bellati in Venice ( where he sold himself to the public with a time slavery contract); Ursus Arctos where he walked in a urban suburb with a brown bear, made of newspapers, with the aim to aware of the return of the big wild carnivores in urban areas). He currently lives and work in Debba, Vicenza.
