The unifying concept is always an idea that grows with me, speaks with me, sleeps with me, before taking its concrete form. Video and photography are certainly the media that I use most frequently, together with drawing and sound installations. Each project is different, as are the problems I have to deal with in order to realize them, which also depend on the medium I’m using, the situation I’m working in, and the place where the work gets exhibited. – Andrea Galvani

Working with a variety of both traditional and new media, Italian-born artist Andrea Galvani has dedicated his research-based practice and scientific methods to capture atmospheric images of the natural environment. Galvani has traveled the world, seeking out remote and often treacherous locales in order to document ever-shifting landscapes, most often with an environmentally conscious bent. In this expansive, surrealist arctic landscape, Galvani documents an environment where he recorded the ambient sounds to give form to the invisible. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions all over the world, including at the Whitney Museum, New York; the 4th Moscow Biennial for Contemporary Art; and the Mediations Biennial, Poznań.
