THE ARTWORK

The work originates from a lithograph, drawing inspiration from the context of the nineteenth/twentieth century, an historical period of research and discoveries defined by the artist "The illusion of the perfect century". In this picture it is possible to identify the mastery of the image technique, which evocatively tells about a end of 19th Century Germany in full evolution and growth. Through the use of spray and varnish, the artist tried to visually reproduce a nebulous universe, to be put over the litography in order to create a sort of temporal archive, generating a cocoon-like environment where to base memories, to be then discovered through drops of colours, in order to re-invoke the temporal infinite possibilities.


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.
