Giuseppe Di Liberto

Giuseppe Di Liberto (1996) was born and raised in Palermo 

The cemeteries, places designated to the

infinite memory. The images and the elements, like straps, keep tight physically the human being to

the memory, linking it sensorially to the

lacuna, the unknown, the hereafter.

My research explores one of the most unknown and mysterious themes to the human being, death.

My intent is to investigate,the rites and the dynamics which revolve around death, concentrating on the social, cultural and political aspects which we can discern in the contemporary, particularly in western tradition.
My reflections are inspired by varied texts.

Among these, “The Pornography of Death” (1955) by Geoffrey Gorer, “Essais sur l’histoire de la mort en occident: du Moyen Age a nos jours” (1975) from the historian Philippe Aries, and the celebrated

philosophical essay, “Surveiller et punir:

Naissance de la prison” (1975) of Micheal Foucault. My art practice is not limited by a single medium but evolves according to the different expressive necessities of the work, running primarily towards sculpture.

The installation space is conceived as an

integral part of my work. It becomes the

means to establish a relationship between

single elements. At the center of my research lies

diverse sensorial stimuli which create

an important role to be played by the viewer.
