Andrea Vassallo

(United Kingdom / Italy)
Of Italian origins but based in England, Andrea is a PhD Candidate and an art technician at the University of Chichester, West Sussex. He is a sedulous walker with many thousands of kilometres under his feet; he walked several Camino of Santiago routes, Italian and English trails, and his latest walk was during the summer of 2021 when he walked 2000 km from his home in England to his family home in Italy for his PhD project titled ‘From home to Home’.
His artistic practice focuses on the participatory quality of the work, where the environment presented is enabled by the direct involvement of the visitor. The idea of everyday objects becomes the interlink between physical action and experiencing, moving away from the traditional relation between visitor and art-product, introducing a hands-on approach where the somatic participation is fundamental for the fruition of the work.
