Franco Arcieri is a Toronto-based sound installation and sound performance artist. Much of his work explores communicative and social/political tensions and the role of technology within these tensions. Arcieri is interested in enacting or representing these communicative tensions upon those who encounter his work. He manifest the physical aspects of his work through sound, performance and the use of textiles and fibres techniques either in sound performances or interactive sound installations. Aesthetically, his work employs a DIY aesthetic. Accordingly, this is not to suggest the work is messy or poorly-assembled; rather, it suggests that there is an honesty and emphasis on the materiality of the work.
Arcieri is currently finishing his BFA at OCAD.U and as showing work provincially and internationally in galleries and projects such as Boxes Zones Quarters, les abattoir Casablanca, Morocco, Boxes Zones Quarters, Priscilla Queen of the Madina, Marrakech, Morocco, Out of Pocket, Carrier Arts Organization, Toronto, Ontario, spectrum, OCAD.U Open Spaces Gallery, Toronto Ontario, Ghost Hole, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Toronto, Ontario, F’D UP!, Art Gallery of Mississauga, Mississauga Ontario, Das Unheimliche, Creatures Collective Gallery, Toronto, Ontario and Photo Negative, The Blue Tomato Gallery, Peterborough, Ontario.
