Davide Ghelli Santuliana
Davide Ghelli Santuliana is a multimedia artist and researcher based in Amsterdam (NL). His practice spans across different media, from moving-images, to text, to sound design. In his research he is mostly interested in analyzing the effects of semiocapitalism on the individuals, in its social, economic and political effects, but also the intersection between semiocapitalism and artistic production. For this reason, he often employs different appropriation strategies — from a direct remix of found images, to citation and re-enactement of existing motives.
My Goals Are Bigger Than Yours
This project is part of Season #5 in Off the, Grid: My Goals Are Bigger Than Yours, organized by artists David Ghelli Santuliana, Valentino Russo, Cathleen Owens, Carmen Dusmet Carrasco & Arthur Cordier.
