Born in Florence, Italy, di Cocco's oeuvre spans over thirty years and positions its base in the nature of massive objects conjoined in space.With his experience and study of architecture, di Cocco has a fluent ability to use the "shape of space".  IN VIVO correspondingly utilizes the expansive labyrinthine realms of the gallery's architecture and stark lighting to situate the viewer in a surrounding of a cohesive multilayered atmosphere, an embodied arena in which time completes space.

The artistic practice of di Cocco evolved throughout his career. He began concentrating firstly on the collapse of grandeur and power with installations of shipwrecks "Grandi Naufragi", submarines and plane wrecks. These original starting points transformed overtime; out from mechanical crashed shells and he entered anew into "wrecks of animals". The installations taken as interrelated object entities are intended not as playful tragedies, but rather as places for meditative discovery, fascinating exploration and the urge for adventure.
