wooden giant letters, 11×2 cm, Swiss Alps >>> Special Project for Art Basel 2021

This work is part of a series of interventions conceived in different contests since 2013. The work is the exclusive gateway for a series of videos in daily growth. A sort of contemporary “Sistine Chapel” to be seen in one’s own private dimension. The list of videos, which opposes the dictatorship of the algorithm because it is completely unexpected, is made up of videos that contain everything. Art, life, the banality of the ordinary that pushes us to train “new eyes”.Still works, apparently incomprehensible, but which open to a fluid and generous dimension. An immobility capable of changing every day.

This series of works, which were born in 2013, anticipate and surpass the NFT philosophy-technology that was born only between 2014 and 2017. These works are exclusive passages to a list of contents in daily growth that can be considered NFT files.

> CRITICISM, THE FIGHT, THE FUTURE: LUCA ROSSI 

 In the Italian contemporary art scene there is a figure of considerable interest. Luca Rossi–artist/ collective, critic, curator, and blogger–is a controversial personality who works in anonymity, as some kind of Anonymous of the Art System. In Luca Rossi’s philosophy, the ego no longer exists because anyone can be Luca Rossi, at the same time that the “critical process”, the virtual space of the Internet, and the real context no longer have boundaries and blend into one. Scroll down this page. 

 Today individuals experience a sort of “non-experience” in the sense that they spend most of their time surfing the “network”, producing a “new memory-without memory” or a “passive and a-critical assimilation” into the system. Luca Rossi knows this well. He constantly reminds us of the history of art and ideas, of our past, of what it means to be critical and active, struggling to preserve one’s own authenticity and originality in the great McDonald that is our contemporary world.

Many curators and artists, both in Italy and Europe, have been following Luca’s work with great excitement. By now Luca is considered the only critical voice that “stands out” in the current Italian landscape.

It is worrisome that Luca’s work has yet to be recognized by institutions and organizations, despite receiving the acknowledgement of the public and many curators and artists. This says a lot about what the value that the Italian system places on the “real artist”. The Italian contemporary landscape has been dragging itself down for more than 10 years, producing artists who “copy and paste”, endless repetitions of projects signed by the same names, and decreeing the end of contemporary art.
