Scoli Acosta

Los Angeles-based Scoli Acosta transforms images and objects gleaned from daily life, literature, mass culture, and dreams. Acosta’s work is characterized by what he describes as an “aesthetics of resourcefulness”—the artist favors humble materials, economic gestures, and transparency with respect to craft.  His installations emerge as poetic constellations that reveal traces of his research and production processes, as well as his movements through various landscapes. His work, installations and performances, has been presented in solo and group shows in major contemporary institutions in France such as FRAC Normandie; FRAC Basse-Normandie; Passerelle, Centre d’art Contemporain, Brest; La Criée, Rennes; FRAC Pays de la Loire; Centre d’art de la Ferme du Buisson, Noisiel; Castillo/Corrales, Paris; Jeu de Paume, Paris; Laboratoire d’Aubervilliers; Fondation Ricard, Paris and in the United States at The Armory Show, NYC; MCASD Downtown, San Diego, CA; MADE IN LA 2012 at the Hammer Museum; LAXART, Los Angeles… Website
