GUIDO SEGNI

Guido Segni — also known as Clemente Pestelli — b. 1981, Italy

With a background in hacktivism, net art and video art, he lives and works somewhere, online and offline, playing with art, internet culture and data hallucinations.

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).

Recently he has been shortlisted for the art division of the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival (2017), has been finalist at Prize Arte Laguna (2016) and got an honorary mention at Transmediale (2011) with Les Liens Invisibles.

Currently he co-directs the Green Cube Gallery, teaches at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Carrara and directs the imaginary REFRAMED lab.
