Tesselate is a research project that began with an artist in residence programme in Italy, organised and funded by IoDeposito.

Founded in 2009 with the aim of contributing to the advancement of young people’s welfare and cultural well-being through the media of arts, IoDeposito is a NGO that works with the aim of supporting young people’s specific competencies related to visual arts projects, training and research in the fields of cultural management, art and curatorial practices.

I travelled to Friuli Venezia Giulia to take up residence with the Pittini Group in Ossopo, a steel producer focused on long steels for construction and mechanics. In addition to this partnership, I was also taken to various other sites across the region, including Venzone - a medieval town and national monument that has literally been restored stone by stone, following two devastating earthquakes in 1976 - and the disused Raibl Mines at Cave di Predil.

From these experiences, of which I write about in detail in this document, I developed a body of work with the support of the Natural History Museum in London, which was then exhibited at the Bunker di piazza I maggio, Udine, in November 2022. This exhibition attracted 1000 visitors a day. The following documentation details this sequence of events through images, text and documentation.
