Davide Meneghello’s work uses photography, slide, text and installation as a space to investigate meaning and ideas concerned with gender representation, queer history and the construction of the homosexual discourse. Other recurrent themes in his practice are historical narratives, systems of representation and archival practices. Fundamental component to his making is the employment of physical and material process as tools for conceptual outcomes.
