Lives and works in Milan, Italy
Luca Pozzi is a visual artist and interdisciplinary mediator. Inspired by the worlds of art, physics, multi-messenger cosmology and computer science, after graduating with a degree in painting and specializing in computer graphics and systems, he collaborates with visionary scientific communities, including Loop Quantum Gravity (PI), Compact Muon Solenoid (CERN) and the Fermi Large Area Telescope (INFN, NASA).
Studying quantum gravity, teleportation, time travel, cosmology and particle physics, the theoretical research is converted in a series of hybrid installations characterized by magnetized sculptures, levitating objects, light drawings and a performative use of photography based on a strange feeling of frozen time and multidimensionality.
His work has been exhibited in major museums and galleries in Italy and abroad, and his pieces are part of prestigious public and private collections, including the Mart of Rovereto, the MAMbo of Bologna, the MEF of Turin, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs collection “LA FARNESINA” and the Archive of Spatial Aesthetics and Praxis of New York. He is known for his photographic series “Supersymmetric Partners”, documenting real jumps in front of the Renaissance paintings of Paolo Veronese, and for his use of electromagnetic levitation technologies in futuristic installations such as “Schroedinger’s cat through Piero Della Francesca influence “(Museo Marino Marini, 2010), “9 Churches 9 Columns” (Moscow Biennale, 2011) and “The Star Platform” (Marrakech Biennale, 2012).
In 2013, he invented the device of light drawing by remotely “Oracle” (DLD, Haus der Kunst, Monaco); In 2015 he presented “The Messengers of Gravity” monograph (MEF, Turin) and two years later he activated the cross-disciplinary “Blazing Quasi-Stellar Object” project at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, Geneva). In 2017 he attended “Documenta 14” as part of the “Eternal Internet Brotherhood community” (Kassel). Of 2018 is his first immersive installation with VR and AR components “The Grandfather Platform”. He is currently collaborating with the INFN on the integration of particle detectors in his artworks, to expand the sensoriality of the human body towards the new frontiers of quantum computing and artificial intelligence.
