"For my 16th CUTMR I will transform my studio into a black light version negative of itself. I love to re contextualize common object and space into visions from my dream world."
Bruno Billio is a self taught artist working from an interdisciplinary background. At once an installation artist, a sculptor, and a designer, Billio creates challenging works informed by his command of each of these practices. Billio has been the resident artist at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto for the past 16 years and has exhibited nationally and internationally. His artistic practice is informed by the active displacement and staging of the found object, a contemporary art strategy with a historically established lineage. The everyday is reinterpreted through its spatial and contextual re-appropriation by the artist, interventionist and an inventor by de-familiarizing the everyday object.
