Biography

DOWNLOAD PORTFOLIO ENG

ANNALAURA di LUGGO (b. Naples, Italy 1970) On display at 58th Venice Biennale (Dominicanan Repubblic pavillon - Palazzo Albrizzi Capello), she is an artist whose path oscillates between multimedia and pictorial research.

Fusing aesthetics, perfor- mance, and technology, the artist creates visually striking works that incite dialogue about social issues. She has, with dexterity and empathy, tackled incarceration (“Never Give Up”), environmental issues (“Sea Vision/7 Points of View”), human rights (“Human Rights Vision”), and blindness (“Blind Vision”). To create Napoli Eden, her last project, di Luggo used recycled aluminum to construct four site-specific monumental installations open to the public that encouraged debate on sustainability in her hometown, Naples. This project inspired the creation of the experimental documentary film Napoli Eden, directed by Bruno Colella and distributed internationally. The artist has received praise for her work from the public, major art critics, and prominent in- ternational figures from the world of culture and entertainment. Her works have been exhibited in Italy and in galleries in Miami, New York, Paris, and Istanbul. She is part of both public and private collections in Italy and abroad. Annalaura di Luggo’s installations distort space to confound her visitors’ visual coordinates of reality. Commissioned by corporate sponsors, institutions, and municipalities, she has completed both permanent (Museum of the Institute P. Colosimo of Naples Museum of Juvenile Prison of Nisda, Naples) and temporary interactive installations (United Nations, New York; Scope Art Fair, Basel & Miami; Genoa International Boat Show, Torino The Others fair, etc).
