Renate Wiehager (Ed.)
Curator Renate Wiehager provides us with the essential pointer regarding the working method of Luca Trevisani by bringing Le Corbusier into play, whose amorphous architectures had been inspired by artifacts found at the boundary between nature and culture. An extensive overview of young Italian artist Luca Trevisani’s work is documented for the first time, featuring over four hundred reproductions. Trevisani, born in Verona (1979), working in Berlin and Bologna, creates an associatively-gathered world from multiple sources including graphic and product design, cultivation processes, scientific maps, literature, arts and crafts techniques, art history, elements of nature, photos and more. His sculptures and paintings are made with natural as well as manufactured materials (branches, feathers and string, metal bars among much else) and suggest the fragility of tactile experiences while insisting on the idea that the external world is understood only through direct experience. Essays by Renate Wiehager, Andrea Cortellessa and Luca Lo Pinto.
