Ugo Petronin

Ugo Petronin (1985, Aix-en Provence, FR), is an artist and filmmaker based in Rotterdam.

Most of the works by Ugo Petronin are driven by his fascination with waters and fluidity, and their potential to question our material, epistemic and ontological presuppositions. Recurrent in his practice are the disruption and construction of interrelationships between techniques, gestures and metaphors. Until now the works were predominantly photographic and cinematographic, but his ongoing river-specific research uses experimental ethnography to approach water and its imaginaries. He holds a Master in Lens-Based Media Design from the Piet Zwart Institute and a Bachelor in Sociology and Cinema from Aix-Marseille University. His last film Abiding (2019) has been selected and awarded in international film festivals and is being distributed by the Eye Film Museum and Doc Alliance Films.
