Overview

In kindergarten, I got caught stealing the other children’s snacks. I thought they were much better than mine. Then I tried to steal a tiny toy car from a store, and the local church’s offerings. After some unsuccessful attempts, I understood I wasn’t cut out for it. I also remember watching the news, when they announced Munch’s paintings were stolen. I was angry, such a poor consideration of those important artworks I had only encountered during art history classes. Even if I had only seen them as printed reproductions, it felt like a huge loss. Stolen in broad daylight, they said. Yet the images were there, glaring on the tv screen, globally broadcasted, both close and distant. They got impressed on my retinas. I told myself that the fidelity of the medium didn't really matter. Every experience is unique! Still, the chance to look at the originals within their context, in their specific size, materials and state of conservation, seemed irremediably lost, as much as the consequent transformation or refinement of the way I related to them. Yesterday, the Munch museum in Oslo was snatched from its local community and moved to the waterfront, as a new tourist-catcher landmark. Today the Y-blokka, the government office building damaged by a far-right terrorist attack, is at risk of being torn down. Olga took this picture, where I am posing in front of it with some friends. When I recently saw it, it reminded me of that beautiful day together. Nothing important. Very important! Important enough!

In Broad Daylight, 2015-2017
Series of twenty-five silkscreen prints on paper
Twenty-six reproductions of stolen artworks, obtained from broadcast news, are blown up to the dimensions of the originals and printed using the silkscreen technique. Catching this spectral presence, the copies are often cropped, blurred, washed-out. As a symbolic compensation for that loss, the prints have been proposed as a donation to the respective museums that were victims of theft.


Andrea Galiazzo (1983) is an Italian artist living and working in Oslo and Brussels. His artistic practice deals with the transmission of memory, intended as a transformative process in which accidents and misunderstandings play an important role. Using a wide range of media, he combines personal experiences with reflections on fundamental notions in art history such as authenticity and authorship. Galiazzo has an MFA degree from Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
