Flavio Trevisan works with various media to explore spatial conditions and architectural concepts. His recent projects represent an ongoing engagement with maps as a visual code and sculptural medium. His understandings of space and structure, arising as a result of his complex relationship with architectural practice, cause him to see the process of translating two-dimensional maps into sculpture as a way to appreciate the internal logic and progressive accumulation of our urban and suburban environment.
Flavio Trevisan is based in Toronto and was educated at the University of Toronto School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Prior to pursuing an art career he worked on numerous buildings in Toronto, including the Harbourfront Fire Station and the Schulich School of Business at York University. Recent solo shows include Grey Area, Convenience Gallery, Toronto; Accumulations, Art Mûr, Montréal; and Folded Landscapes-Unfolding Maps with Gwen MacGregor, Akau Gallery, Toronto.
