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, Lapo Simeoni loves experimenting with materials and combinations, identifying 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.

Lapo Simeoni (1979) is a graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. He currently lives and works in Berlin.

Through the use of recycled materials, furniture, collages, paintings, photography, books and objects, he reconstructs narratives around the relationship between man and consumerism, thanks to an extensive process of transforming each material and changing its original function. The artist works with images of the past and present, including photographs of monuments, in addition to logos and symbols from old magazines, contemporary advertising and ancient artefacts or forgotten household objects. Simeoni also alters images and objects assembling and deconstructing them, in order to develop a new vision of time and social transformation entirely ascribable to the contemporary.
