With a background in Hacktivism, Net Art and Video Art, Guido Segni, aka Clemente Pestelli, (b. 1976, Italy) lives and works somewhere at the intersections between art, pop internet culture and data hallucination.
Mainly focused on the daily (ab)use of Internet, his work is characterized by minimal gestures on technology which combines conceptual aproaches with a traditional hacker attitude in making things odd, useless and dysfunctional.
In quite recent years he moved from an identity to another producing works, actions and interventions under pseudonyms, collectives and multiple names (Dedalus, Clemente Pestelli, Guy McMusker, Angela Merelli, Anna Adamolo, Guy The Bore, Umberto Stanca, Silvie Inb, Fosco Loiti Celant, Guru Miri Goro, Leslie Bleus, Luther Blissett).
Co-founder of Les Liens Invisibles , he exhibited in galleries, museums (MAXXI Rome, New School of New York, KUMU Art Museum of Talinn) and art & media-art international festivals (International Venice Biennale, Piemonte SHARE Festival, Transmediale).
Recently he has been shortlisted for the art division of the 20th Japan Media Arts Festival (2017), has been finalist at Prize Arte Laguna (2016) and got an honorary mention at Transmediale (2011) width Les Liens Invisibles.
Currently he teaches at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Carrara, directs the imaginary REFRAMED lab and he is directing the online greencube.gallery.
