Remi Pico'

My work attempts – both formally and conceptually – to answer the question “how does our idea of reality change when language is transformed, weakened or even silenced?”. Whether articulated as a painting, 3d installations or video art my work points to these questions by portraying spaces in which language evanesces, human conventions disappear and our constructed-reality fades away.

I am an Italian conceptual artist living and working in Jamaica Plain, Boston.  I began my artistic career in London collaborating with the artist Josh Baum on making sculptures using water as the main element. These works – which have been featured in international art journals and shown in different galleries in the UK – marries art and science by manipulating water and its interaction with materials to create delicate pieces. 

More recently my art has been focusing on the themes of semiotics, temporality and reality. In 2015 my conceptual work on language and temporality was selected for a TEDx talk, and more recently a painting from my Untitled Reality series was acquired for the permanent collection of the Boston Library and is now displayed at the Jamaica Plain Branch.
