Alessandro Lupi

Born in 1975 in Genoa, Italy, lives and works in Berlin, Germany.His works were exhibited

among others at the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Venice Architecture Biennale, the Avesta

Museum in Sweden or the Kunsthaus Tacheles in Berlin. In 2008 he realized an installation

for the International Biennial of Havana which is permanently exhibited in the Escuela

Nacional de Bellas Artes de San Alejandro. In 2010 the City of Ljubljana commissioned a

sculpture to celebrate the World Book Capital Ljubljana by the UNESCO.

From 2013 he focuses on site specific art works in different museums and public light and

land festivals in Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Turkey, Israel, France and Sweden.

Lupi’s work focuses on light and its fusion with color, space and time. Every work appears to

create its own world, concentrating on the idea of “inversion”, that is, on the possibility of

offering to the spectator the opposite point of view from the expected or predicted one. In his

works the dichotomy of opposite situations, like exterior-interior, freedom-prison or life-death

are annulated by the contemporary perception of these two aspects without, nevertheless,

favoring any perceptive or hierarchic prevalence.
