Jacek Ludwig Scarso

Jacek Ludwig Scarso (PhD) is an internationally exhibited artist, curator and academic, whose work stretches theatrical experiences across live performance, video, photography and installation. Born in Rome, he now lives and works in London. Jacek’s creative process stems from his background in performance and vocal studies: since graduating from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, he has combined his performance work as Artistic Director of award-winning Elastic Theatre, receiving funding grants from Wellcome Trust, ACE and Jerwood, with his independent profile as interdisciplinary artist. As well as focusing on his artistic practice, he also acts as Curator of Fondazione Marta Czok in Rome. He is a member of the Tate Exchange Research Steering Group and UK correspondent for Exibart Magazine (Italy).

His projects, investigating intersections between practices of theatricality and contemporary art, have been exhibited worldwide. These include shows and commissions at Tate Exchange / Tate Modern, York Art Gallery, MACRO Museo di Arte Contemporanea (Rome), the Science Museum, GV Art Gallery and InTRANSIT (London), Fotofever at Carrousel du Louvre, Pave D’Orsay and Cutlog (Paris), BAW and The Living Theater (New York), MIA (Milan), Galleria Civica Cavour (Padua), Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Galleria ArteSpazioTempo (Venice), Weissraum Gallery (Kyoto, Japan), CICA Museum (Gyeonggi-do, South Korea), Tai Kwun (Hong Kong), Photo Docks (Lyon), Vkunst (Frankfurt) and Kunstwerk Carlshütte (Budelsdorf) where his video-works are included in the Nord Art Collection.
