Edoardo Manzoni (b.1993, Crema) lives and works in Milan. His research develops from the rural context in which he grew up and which has always influenced his work. The rural world and the imaginary linked to it have stimulated interest in the relationship between the natural and the artificial, the human and the animal. His artistic practice, based on a process of continuous recovery and re-elaboration of objects and materials, crosses different modes of expression such as sculpture, painting and installation, often seeking a dialogue with the world of craftsmen.
His works have been exhibited in different places including: StateOf, Milano; Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como; La Triennale, Milano; Sonnenstube, Lugano; Fondazione Pini, Milano; PAV, Torino; Careof, Milano; Luogo_e, Bergamo; Spazio Menouno, Treviglio. In 2016 Manzoni creates the artist group DITTO, with which he exhibits in: Macao, Milano; Villa Farinacci, Roma; Current, Milano; Museo Archeolgico Paolo Giovio, Como. Since 2017 takes part in Altalena, an indipendent curatorial project. In 2018 Edoardo founded Residenza La Fornace, inviting many artists in his own family farm.
