Artist Bio:

With a background in Hacktivism, Net Art and Video Art, Guido Segni, aka Clemente Pestelli, (b. 1976, Italy) lives and works somewhere at the intersections between art, pop internet culture and data hallucination.
Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of Internet, his work is characterized by minimal gestures on technology which combines conceptual aproaches with a traditional hacker attitude in making things odd, useless and dysfunctional.
Co-founder of Les Liens Invisibles , he exhibited in galleries, museums (MAXXI Rome, New School of New York, KUMU Art Museum of Talinn) and art & media-art international festivals (International Venice Biennale, Piemonte SHARE Festival, Transmediale).

Curator:

Domenico Quaranta

Artist Statement:

As a big estimator of JODI’s work I decided it was time to make for real my first collaboration with JODI.
Even without their knowledge.
My proposal for the #exstrange project is a speculative work of art based on a previous #exstrange ebay auction (EBAY shopping bag ( #exstrange edition ), http://ebay.eu/2mejgNY ).
