Born in 1962 à San Giovanni Teatino, Fabrizio Tridenti is an Italian art jeweller. After graduating in 1982 from Istituto Statale d’Arte, Penne, he spent a few years as an apprentice in a couple of reknown workshops, before establishing his studio in 1993 in Pescara. Today he lives and works in Vasto.
His work has been exhibited in many galleries and museums internationally, such as MAD Museum in New York, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, the Museo degli Argenti, Palazzo Pitti, in Florence, the Amber Museum in Gdañsk, the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon.
The aesthetic language developed by Fabrizio Tridenti reflects in a frontal way the reality of the contemporary industrial and technological environment. Using poor materials, usually industrial waste, he composes, out of chaos, monumental and powerfully designed objects. By refuting the traditional aspects of jewelry such as functional, formal and aesthetic values, he moves his reflection on the field of conceptual art and proposes a wider field of investigation for the jewel.
"My intention is to isolate an interesting shape out of this chaos. I am more attracted by the casualness of events than by determining them, because in project design and development the surprise element is lost, whereas it exists in identifying and reproducing a casual combination. So the purpose is to lose the idea of shape." -- Fabrizio Tridenti
