Marco G. Ferrari (b. 1974) is an Italian-American artist and filmmaker based in Chicago, Illinois. He studied music and film at Ithaca College, then received a Bachelor of Arts degree from DePaul University in Communication. In 2013 Ferrari earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts from the University of Chicago. A consciousness of place runs throughout Ferrari’s personal and collaborative projects. He builds films, installations, digital images, sounds, and video projection performances that explore our relationships with place and time, to probe how identity is shaped by tensions raised by our attachments to or de-attachments from our built and natural environments. Upholding a `cinema of imperfection' that reveals the materiality of the image, Ferrari’s work seeks to move beyond a perceived transparent reality to a place of visual plasticity and sublime emotional experience. He currently balances his art-making studio practice as an associate curator for Rebuild Foundation’s Black Cinema House, teaching video and photography at Franklin University Switzerland, freelancing as a cinematographer and vj, and managing Ferrari Studios, a collaborative studio space in Chicago and Guardistallo, Italy, shared between himself and his father sculptor Virginio Ferrari.
