Biography

Since the later 1980s, Luca Vitone has focused on the idea of constructing and presenting places, whether geographic, political, forgotten, or revered. Vitone is particularly interested in the way that places are created through cultural production, like art, cartography, architecture, political association, and ethnic grouping. His paintings and installations can loosely be called landscapes made using materials found from a specific site, like the waste, foods, and beverages. Other works are conceptual portraits of places, in which Vitone let the weathering and pollution create marks or imprints on a surface he would later present. He also created participatory performances, which take the form of itineraries exploring lesser-known areas of cities.
