/Biography
Marco Cassani (b. Milan, Italy) is a conceptual artist, originally trained as a painter at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, Italy. Since 2008 he lives and works in Bali, Indonesia, where he maintains his studio and developed an art program called Kayu, Lucie Fontaine’s branch in Bali. Cassani’s artistic activity is not restricted to a studio practice but also includes endeavors such as curating, producing and facilitating art exhibitions. Through his practice, Cassani calls certain emblems and social codes into question, particularly those linked to political and social power, using art as a ‘catalyst’ to create a new understanding towards the construction of value. His last solo show has been presented 2018 at Honold Fine Art in Bali; he has also recently exhibited at Studio Kalahan in Yogyakarta, Lucie Fontaine space in Milan; Lucie Fontaine’s satellite in Tokyo; Galeri Semarang in Semarang; OFCA International in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and ArtStage in Singapore. He is currently invited for an artist residency and as a guest lecturer at Melbourne University in Australia.
