In some eastern universes the Loka are the connected worlds where all beings manifest. Maybe all the universe regions are connected and linked one into the other, so you could ideally trace a map that starting from the borders of a cell reaches stars geography. Every map is so median and never finished, suspended on what includes and what is included. This project is composed of some painting artworks realized with mixed techniques on jute canvas.
Luca Di Luzio was born in Rome in 1986, where he lives and works. He received his BFA from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence and his MFA from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome. In 2013 he had two residencies: C.A.M.A.C. in Marnay sul Seine (France) and at the Gallery Hommes in Rotterdam (Holland). In 2015 he began his Atlas Ego Imago Mundi project, impressing his body in paint and then onto large sheets of paper, creating an imaginary atlas and maps. The theme of this work is the human body, its profound ambiguity, and its role as the main subject of our experiencing of the world and at the same time as a part of the world, coming from the same substance. In 2016 the series was exhibited at the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, and at the Walls Museum of Rome. On September 2017 the series has been exhibited in a solo exhibition at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome. Luca Di Luzio’s artistic research explores the unclear relationship between controllable and uncontrollable, calculus and random.
