Marco Giordano (b.1988, Turin, Italy) lives and works in Glasgow, UK. working across different medias such as painting, sculpture, site specific installation and collaborative community projects, Giordano utilises ephemera from pop culture and everyday, making different combinations of objects and materials, playing with the visual and literal meaning in order to change their function and alter the way we perceive them. By changing the context, introducing these first into the studio and then in the exhibition space, Giordano disrupts the object’s original meaning thus creating new perspective and form of understanding.

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
For this performance, Giordano installs speakers on the roof of a rented car, transforming the vehicle into a tool for propaganda. The artist investigates the idea of individuality, within our wider society-fulfilling the idea of being recognised and generally accepted as a public figure that reflects its own community. Driving around the city, he explores the common idea that an individual has to achieve and accomplish, in order to be identified.
