About the artist

Marco Giordano (1988, Italy) lives and works in Glasgow. Giordano’s practice revolves around the investigation of the space, developed through a subversive process that question the relations between the subjects and elements that inhabit it. The body is conceived as something fluid and hybrid, free from any fixed form.
