Born in 1964, lives and works in Ripabianca in Umbria and London.
Well known for his ceramic and glass sculptures, he works with a variety of mediums, including drawing, photography and writing.
His work is in private and public collections in Europe and the United States, including the Sol LeWitt Collection in Hartford, Connecticut, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, California, the MAXXI Museum in Rome and the Murano Glass Museum.
The Tristano di Robilant exhibition curated by Elisa Schaar for the Venice Glass Week 2020 at Palazzo Polignac.
Composed of a group of seven glass sculptures made in Murano with the collaboration of the master glassmaker Andrea Zilio.
The title of the exhibition, taken from Marcel Proust, refers to a window in Venice that arouses in him strong emotional memories of both the city and his beloved mother.
The transparent glass sculptures - like window prisms - obliquely pay homage to the rich literary and musical history of Palazzo Polignac and, on a more personal level, evoke memories of a summer spent there as a boy in 1976.
