Santiago Cucullu

Argentinean born artist Santiago Cucullu creates multi-media works that culminate in spatially unified and conscious installations. Often arranged with elaborate wall-sized murals, sculpture, and vibrant works on paper, Cucullu emphasizes the subtleties of intuitive pacing and spatial orientation experienced in his broad installations. Specifically, Cucullu creates works using a duality of materials and appropriation to indicate the oscillation and ability of objects to collapse on themselves while activating an exhibition space. In a description of his work the artist Michelle Grabner comments: "a duality of materials and appropriation that indicate the oscillation and ability of the objects to shift between a given formal solution, and the ultimate collapsibility in the overall appearance of the work. This undermines the general hierarchy in the relationship between the institution, the viewer and the object."
His most recent works combine wall murals with videos and prints to capture fleeting moments by freezing and extending everyday moments. The videos feature repeating simple vignettes from everyday life. The timeline moves forward and backwards which providing a hypnotic and metronomic regularity. Cucullu currently lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He received his MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and his BFA from the Hartford Art School in Connecticut. A former resident of the Core Program at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Cucullu's work has been exhibited at a number of institutions, including the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, among others.
