Andrea Galiazzo

Despite all forms of joy and beauty, the world seems ever more dystopian. Whilst the imagery from the genocide in Gaza and war in Ukraine becomes increasingly overwhelming, a small elite is escalating their profits through the exploitation of lands, people, and all living things. How to counter complete capitulation within this system? From where can one harvest the strength to continue the fight in this hostile environment?

Departing from these questions, Andrea Galiazzo is drawing our attention towards the quotidian life. In his exhibition Twelve Months, twelve textile works have been put on display, representing the months of the roman calendar – from March to February. In an equal amount of short video works, both the textiles and the viewer become part of the artist’s every day. We are taken on walks with a stroller through the streets of Oslo, attend dinner parties, manifest for worker’s rights, protest the genocide in Gaza, and witness moments of grief. The mundane and personal is entwined with the artist’s world perception. What is the meaning of this fragile, and from time to time pointless, existence? In this entanglement of minor and major moments, Galiazzo draws up a web of connections that mirror the complexity of being in the tug of war between meaning and impotence.

Andrea Galiazzo (b. 1983) lives and works in Oslo. He is educated at IUAV University in Venice, HISK Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Ghent, and KHiO Oslo National Academy of the Arts. His works have been presented in a solo exhibition in Trondhjem Kunstforening, and a duo exhibition, with Marthe Ramm Fortun, at Huset for Kunst & Design, Holstebro. Additionally, Galiazzo’s works have been displayed at group exhibitions at Interkulturelt museum, Oslo, Femtensesse, Oslo, The Autumn Exhibition at Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo, The Drawing Triennial 2019, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, and at Kristiansand Kunsthall. In 2020, Galiazzo was honored with The Norwegian Association of Art and Crafts’ Student Prize. In 2025 his works will be presented in a solo exhibition at KRAFT in Bergen.
Andrea Galiazzo’s Twelve Months has been made possible with the generous support of Arts Council Norway, Oslo Municipality, and the Relief Fund of Visual Artists. The project has been further assisted by TextielLab, TextielMuseum, Tilburg NL, who produced the textiles on display in the exhibition.
