Daniele Formica (Perugia, 1996) lives and works in The Hague. He received the Fine Arts Bachelor Award at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (KABK) and has participated in several exhibitions in The Hague, Amsterdam, and Arnhem. Daniele Formica's work comes from the impulse to internalize and repurpose the universe to its people. Combining cross-disciplinary knowledge and everyday banality, he composes a repertoire of linguistic revelations, schizophrenic theories, and poetic claims. 


Daniele Formica’s practice could be described as cartographic, as he superimposes layer upon layer of cognitive, emotional, and ontological entanglements onto vulnerable mapping exercises that ultimately form a complex artistic atlas. In his work, oftentimes drawing from classical literature, language enunciates thought while tracing coordinates in his entropic mind. Words, as if entries on a diary, emerge from his vital experience and create linguistic rhythms of repetition and alternation wherein to gather and position fragmented identities and knowledges.
