THE ARTWORK

The work is part of the "Diorama / Napoli" exhibition project, conceived as a personal vision of Naples linked to the city's history, in a continuous dialogue between past and present. The artist focuses on a subtle, conceptual and ironic recovery of popular symbols and iconographies, which are however investigated and subjected to a change in meaning. In this sense Simeoni loves experimenting with materials and combinations, coming to identify the most representative of their intuitions. The continuous references to events then take on poetic tones and are often expressed through a precise symbology, often explained in the titles.


THE ARTIST

Lapo Simeoni (1979) studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and currently lives and works in Berlin.Through the use of recycled materials, furnitures, collages, paintings, photography, books and objects, he reconstructs narrations on the relationship between man and consumerism, thanks to an extensive process of transformation of materials, changing their original function. The artist works with images between past and present - photographs of monuments, logos and symbols of consonance, from old magazines, contemporary advertising and ancient artefacts or forgotten household objects. Then, Simeoni alters images and objects found by assembling and deconstructing, to develop a new vision of time and social transformation entirely ascribable to the contemporary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                SELECTED SOLO/GROUP SHOWS:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Diorama / Napoli, Itragallery, Naples (2018); Forever Never Comes, Archaeological and Art Museum of Maremma (Grosseto, Italy) (2017); Bonelli Lab Gallery, Canneto sull'Oglio Mantova (2017); Biennale de La Biche, Guadalupe island (2016); Albornoz Museum, Narni; Reggia di Caserta (2016); Bocs Art, Cosenza (2015); The Gras Grows, Basel; The Format Gallery, Milan (2014); Kunstverein Kreis Gutersloh (Germany) (2013); De Krabbedans exposities, kunstinstuitleen, Eindhoven (Holland) (2012); Giovanni Fattori Civic Museum, Livorno (2012); Art Channel Gallery Beijing (China) (2008).
