DIEGO CIBELLI, the winner of the open call 2018
(1987, Naples)

The winner of the open call 2018 is Diego Cibelli: the artist presents Serenissima a plastic installation in clay inspired by domestic space of the seventeen hundreds and by the Bourbon technique of braiding. The residency has given the artist the opportunity of encountering the ancient artisan tradition of the ceramic manufactory of Capodimonte, and to experiment with new artistic interventions.
