Pablo Chiereghin’s research is moved by social and political dynamics and by daily-life-curiosity. His ac- tions, performances, interventions are conceived in dialog with the public and often play with the interfer- ences between medium and significance. His work, and the processes from which it is generated, leads the viewer on situational paths and multilayer meanings where the key role is assigned rather than to a subject or an object, to the synthesis of an idea.
Born in 1977 in Adria (Ro) Italy. He graduated in Communication studies in Bologna. Postgraduate in Photography at Central St. Martins, University of Arts of London. Co-founder of the collective Buuuuuuuuu.net.
