Metembiosis

about Roberto Kusterle

Roberto Kusterle began with painting and installation in the 1970’s, before identifying photography as the ideal means for his artistic expression. During the following years the principal themes of his poetics emerged: a continuity between the human, animal and vegetable world, the mediating role of the body, the negation of the gaze, the constant practice of irony, ambiguity and displacement to shape an idea and to make the viewer wonder. Photography is used to maintain the tension between fiction and reality in a space marked by “metembiosis” — a sort of migration and transmigration between man and animal, according to writer Giuseppe O. Longo.

Born in 1948, in Gorizia, Italy, where he still lives and works, Roberto has a very personal approach to the camera: the actual taking of the picture is only the last step in a complex and articulated creative process — as shown by series as Stabat Mater, Structure of Appearances, The Marks of Metembiosis or Abysses and Low Tides.
