 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1964 in Italy. Lives and works in Berlin.

The work of Luca Vitone is centered in the idea of the place, inviting the viewer to re-cognize something he already know by challenging the faded memory symbolizing the present. Particularly interested in the way places are created through cultural production, like art, cartography, architecture, political associations, and ethnical grouping, Vitone’s paintings and installations explore elements from disciplines like geography, anthropology, sociology, music and literature. He bridges the gap between the sense of loss of place typical of the postmodern and the ways in which feelings of belonging occur in the intersection of personal and collective memory.
