Curated and produced by Standard Practice and Sarah Crown, TWINS is a site-specific multimedia installation by Mattia Casalegno, exploring the symbiotic relationship between us and our technologies, and nature as a machinic process. Twins are grown together, coming from the same source. To form a critique of nature/culture dualism, we start from the acknowledgment that we are technological beings, as much shaped by our technologies as we shape them.

Mattia Casalegno is a Los Angeles based Italian multidisciplinary artist, live-media performer, and installation artist. Mattia's multidisciplinary work is influenced by both post-conceptualism and digital art, and has been defined as relational, immersive, and participatory. His practice explores the effects of new media on society, investigating the relationships between technology, the objects we create, our subjectivities, and the modes in which these relations unfold into each other.
He's exhibited internationally in various festivals and museums such as Mutek Festival in Canada, Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts in Taiwan, MADRE and MACRO in Italy, Rome Fashion Week 2010, Cimatics festival and Nuit Blanche in Belgium, Optronica in UK, Le Cube - Contemporay Art Museum in France, OFFF in Spain, AVIT in Germany, Wright Gallery, AxS Festival and LACMA in US.
He collaborated and had commissions from some of the most successful designers and artists in the fields of fashion and contemporary arts, such as Sonia Rykiel, J.P. Gaultier, R. Capucci, Lita Albuquerque, P. Monti, FENDI. His works are been featured internationally in publications and catalogues such as 'A Touch of Code', Gestalten Books; 'New Media Design', Sometti; and 'Deleuze and Audiovisual Art', Manchester Metropolitan University.
