Lorenzo Modica – MA/MFA
I take inspiration and materials from the streets of London and Rome, empty shop windows, markets, discarded objects, walls. I collect and reuse materials coming from a variety of sources. These materials challenges my control over the work. This attitude sabotages my automatic responses, keeping me in a state of openness, and also make the line between me and the world fluctuate. To explore this tension I often use formal models and visual units from collective narrative structures. Used as critical devices, my subjective apprehension of reality and my personal memories transform and interrogate those same narratives.
