Lorenzo Pizzanelli

The expressive interests of Lorenzo Pizzanelli revolve primarily around interactivity between art and the public.
Through video installations and interactive performances the presupposed role of authority and institutional authority is obscured and obstructed.
A typical theme of the author, most pointedly in the performances, is the concept of the masterpiece as an ironic vision of a reverse transmission of cultural heritage through museums and memory, exemplified in his Trans-Unto Museum. The installations are more a reflection concentrated on the body and its implications, from the cyborg to the genetic engineer. The vision of an animist archetype embedded in the work: Pinocchio, Sacrifice, Exorcist, Anna Bolena, seem to give a magical feel to even the most com temporary technology.
