Girolamo Marri (Rome, Italy, 1980)

Girolamo Marri's practice establishes connections based on the very shortcomings of communication, and uses absurd humor, fractured language and play on expectations, to explore the distance running between a rational interpretation of present reality, and one that is more intuitive and less definable. Marri combines a performative research to the production or alteration of objects, texts and spaces, in talks that never begin to be delivered, in frantic group meditations, in silent interviews, in texts meant to be forever updated, through preposterous street signs and in all kinds of disquieting interactions with strangers. 

Girolamo Marri is based in London where he completed an MA in Sculpture and Performance at the Royal College of Art. Marri has performed and exhibited at the Zendai MOMA, Shanghai Gallery of Art and BANK in China, at firstsite, the Showroom and Matt’s Gallery in the UK, Walden Affairs and NASA/SMART Project Space in the Netherlands and Pierogi Boiler in NYC.
