Based in: Italy
Sergio Fermariello was born in Naples on April 29, 1961. After high school he attended courses in natural sciences at the University of Naples. At the age of 20, he decided to devote himself exclusively to art. His research started from a retrieval of models and familiar memories which later extended to a deeper investigation of universal archai in the recovery of collective unconscious memories.
In 1989, he won the inaugural Saatchi and Saatchi International Prize for Young Artists at the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.That same year, he had his first solo exhibition at the Lucio Amelio Gallery in Naples. Afterwards he staged several one-man shows, including one at the Capricorno Gallery in Venice (1990) and at the Galerie Yvon Lambert in Paris (1992). His work was also shown at a number of international events, such as the Metropolis exhibition at the International Kunstausstellung in Berlin (1991) and the exhibition Les pictographs at the Musée de l’Abbaye Sainte- Croix in Les Sables-d’Olonne. In 1993, at the age of 32, he was invited by Achille Bonito Oliva to take part in the 45th Venice International Biennale Exhibition of Art as part of the Italian Pavilion. In 2009, he exhibited in Brazil at the MAC Niteroi Museum.
Besides his solo exhibitions, Fermariello is interested in land art. He has created some installations including Avviso ai naviganti (performed in Naples in 1999 and at Pier 17 in New York in 2004) and La Terra di Nessuno in Cuma (Naples) in 2014. Fermariello’s works are permanently shown in several public collections: Capodimonte Museum in Naples; Terrae-Motus Foundation, Royal Palace Caserta; Museo Madre, Naples; Building One, Canary Wharf, London; BAG Bocconi Art Gallery, Bocconi University, Milan; Capodichino Airport, Naples.
