Giuseppe Licari was born in Erice, Sicily, in 1980. He uses different materials with particular reference to nature and in relation to the built environment. The public, invited to participate, share, experience and interact, creating a collective memory, is the central point of his work. He defines the public participation as the engine of his artworks. In 1999 he moved to Bologna to study Painting at the Academy of fine Arts. Before completing his studies in Italy, Licari spent a year of studies at AKI Enschede, in the Netherlands, at the Monumental Department of Art. There he got in contact with the environment of social art, site-specific installations and art in the public space. Since then, installations, ephemeral art and happenings have become the main field of interest for his research. Since 2007 he lives and works in Rotterdam.
