Fabio Perletta is a sound and installation artist living and working in Italy. His research – concerned with matter and immaterial – focuses on duality, revealing a network of hidden connections to transcend the limit of media. Investigating notions such as weight and lightness, visible and invisible, his work encourages different levels of experience, engagement and contemplation. Perletta’s practice reveals an inner discipline which goes beyond the scope of rational coordinates, whilst addressing reality and small things.
