Gio Pistone, artist in residence at Campidarte, Ussana, Italy, 2017

Italian street artist Gio Pistone has been called to perform as an artist in residence in the wondrous landscapes of Southern Sardinia, within the spectacular spaces of Campidarte: a former industrial complex now turned into a huge cultural space in the middle of the island’s countryside, close to Cagliari. Pistone created murals and a large statue depicting subjects that alchemically connect to earth, animals and universal soul. As she describes her work she asks herself “to die and reborn, to sacrifice, and pay homage, to free and dominate your instincts… What is the meaning of this game?”. Gio Pistone currently lives and works in Rome.
