Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio (1972 Pozzuoli, lives in Berlin) is a quite sensitive and keen observer of our times and of our society, of man’s small and big weaknesses. He uses various techniques and different materials with extreme irony and freedom in his artworks. His approach is never directed to criticize, rather to comment, a poetic, often tragicomic depiction. His is a comment that is never transformed into judgment – that duty might be left to the spectator.
Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio will exhibit in Merano a new series of drawings, the bizarre characters of which will unveil the obscure character of the self-representations.

His work on paper is sided by sculptures and objects in various materials. Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio proposes an image of our present that is both precise and comic, poetic, and at the same time absurd, with his drawings, objects, and installations. “In your mouth everything dies” imagines what might be left after the continuous flowing of daily images and information.
