Sean Vegezzi (b. 1990) is an artist whose work is comprised of image-making, sculpture, writing, and spatial intervention. His practice examines the effect that both public and private space have on the individual, blending personal experience with narratives of autonomy, privacy, and security. Vegezzi’s projects tend to take place in spaces of a transitory nature, such as under-utilised waterways, infrastructure, construction sites, and vacant commercial real estate properties.

Through the continued use and improvement of such spaces, his practice may also be viewed as a form of performance or social art practice.

Ultimately his works offer an alternative model of living in cities, where undefined areas function as wilderness, and in turn - highlighting the limitations of bureaucratisation in cities and the all-encompassing damage caused by overdevelopment.
