Luca Pozzi

Bio

Luca Pozzi

 

Born in 1983 in Milan, is a visual artist and cultural mediator.

 

Graduated with honors degree at the fine art academy of Brera and specialized in 3D graphics and computer systems, since 2009 collaborates with different scientific communities at the forefront such as the Loop Quantum Gravity at the Albert Einstein Institute of Golm, Berlin; La Faculté de Science de Luminy, Marseilles; the Penn State University, State College and the Perimeter Institute of Waterloo, Ontario.

More recently he is interacting with the CMS team of CERN, the Fermi telescope laboratory and the Virgo Experiment. 

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 works are part of prestigious public and private collections including the Mart of Rovereto, the Mambo of Bologna, the MEF of Turin, the Artist Pension Trust of London and The Archive of Spatial Aesthetics and Praxis of New York.

 

Among the most recent solo exhibitions are Blazing Quasi-Stellar Object, CERN, Ginevra (2017); Discovery & Premonition, alexander levy, Berlin (2016); The Messengers of Gravity, open site- speficic, Museo Ettore Fico – MEF, Turin (2015); Detectors, Galleria Federico Luger, Milan (2015); The Messages of Gravity, GRIMMUSEUM, Berlin (2013); Waiting 4 Oracle [1560- 2012], Kabe Contemporary, Miami, FL.
