Vittorio Santoro was born 1962 in Zürich (CH). He lives and works among Paris (FR) and Zürich (CH).
Developing a work that is both conceptual and referential, Vittorio Santoro?s production takes the form of sound installations, sculptures or drawings. His work, articulated around repetition and literary forms, questions as much the inscription of the work in space and in time as the ontological inscription of the individual within his social space.
His work has been exhibited on the occasion of various exhibitions in France: Fondation Ricard (2012), Centre Pompidou (2012), Rosascape (2011), CAPC (Bordeaux 2010), FRAC Aquitaine (2010), BF15 de Lyon (2011); but equally abroad: Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2011), Kunstmuseum Thun, Berlin (2006), ARTforum Berlin (2007), Tate Modern, London (2006), Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius (2009)
Numerous authors and critics have written about his work: Elizabeth Lebovici, Rhama Khazam, Manuel Cirauqui, Roxana Azimi, Daniel Kurjakovic, etc.
His works are part of many permanent collections: Kunstmuseum Bern (CH), FNAC (Fonds National d'Art Contemporain, Paris), CAPC (Bordeaux, FR), Burger Collection (CH), Hong Kong, FRAC Aquitaine (FR), Graphische Sammlung der Schweizerischen Nationalbibliothek (NB), Bern (CH), Kunstsammlung der Eidgenossenschaft, Bundesamt für Kultur, Bern (CH), Kunstsammlung der Stadt Zürich (CH), Kunstsammlung Kanton Zürich (CH).
