"La Gioia" october - december 2014 

Born in Italy in 1967. Lives and works in Savigno (Bologna).

Flavio Favelli has developed his artistic practice from an intimate and very personal concept of time and space. By assembling gates, benches, doors, railings, balconies, chairs, tables, beds, mirrors, carpets and chandeliers the artist creates works of functional appearance that transform the atmosphere of the places that contain them while charging them with emotions. His installations focus on the aesthetic and poetic value of everyday objects that surround us. Favelli’s work is a continuous attempt at reworking his own sense of disorientation. The mosaic of mirrors in an ancient frame, instead of reflecting, fragments the mirror image, and seems to register the arbitrary nature of our relationship with the world through this bizarre synthesis.
