Biography Giovanni Manfredini
Giovanni Manfredini was born in Pavullo nel Frignano in Modena. At the
age of two, he suffered severe burns. The numerous painful skin
transplants that dominated his life for many years, also influenced his
artistic work. In large work cycles as example ‘Tentativo di esistenza’
(Attempt of existence) he deals with the human body and its existence.
For this he developed from 1992 on a special, complex technique in which
he printed his own body on the sooted image surface out of resin, mixed
with coquina powder. Thus the resulting works achieve an intense
presence, often reminiscent of radiographs. Today Giovanni Manfredini
lives and works in Bologna and Milan. (fea)
