Born in 1969 in Sardegna. Lives and works in Paris.

Michele Ciacciofera works from several mediums, from painting to sculpture, including ceramic works and assemblies; through drawing and sound. In an anthropological approach, he explores various themes related to his native lands, Sardinia and Sicily, in the Mediterranean context. Collective memory, revisited myths and contemporary political reality mingle in works marked by a sensitivity to matter and an acute awareness of current issues related to the reconfiguration of social-economic balances.

Michele Ciacciofera?s work has been exhibited at 57th International Art Biennal, Viva Arte Viva (Venice), Documenta 14 (Athens/Kassel), Museo MAN (Nuoro), CAFA Museum (Beijing), Summerhall (Edinburgh), Palazzo Montalto (Siracusa), Fondazione Sambuca (Palermo), White Box (New York), Light of Creativity Miami Beach (Miami), IMMA Museum (Dublin).

He was awarded the Civitella Ranieri NYC Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship for 2015-16.
