Marco Cianfanelli is an artist who works across the public and private realms, engaging the world in terms of systems rather than discrete objects or fenced off territories. He is constantly looking to realise art where one doesn’t expect to find it and testing the possibilities for artistic intervention in the public realm. In so doing, he has been involved in a wide range of projects involving art, architecture and public space.

Cianfanelli was born in Johannesburg in 1970 and graduated, with a distinction in Fine Art, from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1992. He has had seven solo exhibitions – the most recent being data: process, documented here > exhibitiondata:process < – and has won numerous awards, including the ABSA L’Atelier and Ampersand Fellowship. He is a member the design team for The Freedom Park, South Africa’s national monument to freedom, situated in Pretoria. And his monumental fragmented portrait sculpture, Capture, has recently been inaugurated to symbolically mark the 50th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s capture at the site in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands. Cianfanelli’s work can be found in public and private collections in South Africa, Europe and the United States.
