Nomadic artist Stefano Ogliari Badessi crafts installations full of wonder across the globe. At Museo Civico Di Crema last month the artist kicked off a major project features his inflatable and found object-crafted pieces in an exhibition called “Wonderland.” His works often work as costumes and towering creatures with transparent portions that reveal the humans underneath.
“I was inspired to create unique types of sculptures using common materials and found objects,” the artist says. “This new-found perspective into sculpting opened a door and allowed me a new way to travel- travel as art. In this way, travel and observation provided a simple way for me to explore relationships between culture, people, objects and space. This method is now reflected in my sculptures and installations: I can go anywhere, make art anywhere and with any material. I can simultaneously fuel my imagination with experiences and create new designs related to what I find.”
