Born in Cava de 'Tirreni (SA) in 1973, Davide currently lives and works between Rome and London.
Davide D'Elia produces work that often re-values modern aesthetic terminology by presenting itself beyond object and objectivity, by which he obtains reasoning that examines the concepts of time and the flow of time in the space. The artist observes and lets them start growing spontaneously: passing the time, their increasing shapes become drawings made by nature on the object of art.
The starting point is the artistic production of Davide D'Elia: moving between the contamination between different languages, from photography to complex multi-material installations, D'Elia reasons on the power relations that govern the world around us, for example, the interaction between atmospheric agents and art objects. His works often re-values modern aesthetic graphic terminology by presenting itself beyond object and objectivity (which are nevertheless important symbols), by which he obtains reasoning that examines the concepts of time and the flow of time.
