Alex Cecchetti

Alex Cecchetti (1977-2014) was an artist, a poet and a choreographer. Difficult to classify, his work can be considered as the art of the un-representable. Tactile and poetic, aesthetic and materialistic, it creates mental and physical environments which exist inside and outside our continuum. The artist died for the first time in 2014 for unknown reasons. He continues to produce new works, present new performances and publish new poems.  

Cecchetti has exhibited internationally having solo exhibitions at Kunstraum, London (2015), Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), Vilnius, Lithuania (2012) and Jue de Paume, Paris, (2011) and solo performances at Serpentine Galleries, London (2015), Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014), MAXXI museum, Rome (2012). Recently the Palais de Tokyo in Paris dedicated him a day of carte blanche. Next solo exhibitions CCA Ujazdowski Castle Warsaw (Poland) and Ferme du Buissons (France).
