Paolo William Tamburella works generally arise from interactions with people met during travels and from the use of objects collected and transformed by the artist.
The dockworkers of the Comoros Islands, the cobblers of Calcutta, punctured footballs, vine plants uprooted from a vineyard in Provence, ex-voto discovered by chance in a museum in Venice. A canvas made of humanity and of traces contributing to the creation of installations, sculptures and performances full of expressive and poetic tension.
Paolo William Tamburella participated in the 53rd Venice Biennale, the 2nd Singapore Biennale and has exhibited in various galleries and museums, including the Macro in Rome, the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien in Berlin, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo both in Turin and Guarene and the Annina Nosei gallery in New York. He was co-curator of the first Bangladeshi pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale. He currently lives and works between Rome and Tuscany.
