Curiosità (Curiosity).
I think this is the keyword that always moved me to bring back in visual way discoveries, intuitions, journeys, soul sensations, images.
It push me to move, also phisically, to looking for. And discover that, since 1996 , almost always a certain expression tecnique is associated with a specific theme, with a determinated sensation that must be absorbed by this tecnique.From painting to land art, from photocollages to short movies and multichannel and interactive video installations, I've experimented much of these tecniques, and even if this variety could be taken as "arrogance" and give not me a certain identity, that's me, anyway.

Questa mi sembra la parola chiave che sempre mi ha “mosso” nel riportare in modalità visiva le scoperte, le intuizioni, i viaggi, le sensazioni dell’anima, le immagini. E’ la spinta a muovermi, anche fisicamente, e a cercare. E scoprire poi che, in circa 15 anni di “carriera”, quasi sempre ad un certo mezzo espressivo, ad una tecnica si associa poi un tema specifico, una sensazione che deve essere sperimentata, assorbita insieme alla nuova tecnica. Dalla pittura alla Land Art ne ho sperimentate molte, e anche se la variazione di temi e di mezzi può essere presa per arroganza, se questa varietà può non darmi molta riconoscibilità tra un lavoro e un altro, questo sono io, comunque.

LucaSerasini

I was born in Pisa, Italy, in 1971.
Since 1990 I work in the Institute of Clinical Physiology (IFC) of the italian National Research Council (CNR) where I dealt of electronic devices (1990-1995) then I moved at the Multimedia Lab to support researchers in their educational and research activities and where I learned to use videocameras, cabling, audio-video transmissions, video editing.


I started as self-taught painter in 1996 but since 2003 I started to use also the photography medium, video and videoinstallations for my artworks. Most recently I started to make land art installations (2013) also adding interactive devices due to my study in electronic (2016).

My current practice goes in 3 directions as different projects, both using mixed tecniques.

The first project, the Progetto Costellazioni, begins by the question if we still need the stars, or if they are like ancient cults of forgotten gods, overtaken, buried by new cults and new gods? Only in empty spaces, as the desert or the sea, it is perhaps still possible to feel their presence...
This project started as a wide land art installations project with Costellazione Toro (about 100 meter of lenght) in 2013 followed by Orione, il grande cacciatore (2015) for MateriaPrima artist in residence in Tuscany and Alcor and Mizar for Art in the Woods at 2016 Holmfirth Art festival in UK (second prize) where I first used an interactive device to engage the public. After other land art installations, also interactives, the project turned to other direction as wide light projection on geothermal cooling towers (Larderello- Tuscany, 2018) and stickers and lights on windows as the winner of the Window Project Winter 2017 at Gazelli Art House in London.
In december 2018 I will bring for my first time a land art installation in an indoor exhibition at Palazzo dei Priori in Volterra, and other installations are incoming.
 
Another argument I feel very much is the human condition of our society that I try to realize with two projects: the first one, started in 2016 is an evolution of the kites and bull's project (closed in 2017), and as the title play, the Anxiety of the Modern Man, wants to reflect on our actual modern condition and way of thinking, our concept of democracy, the role of mass media and politics using installations, paintings, crayons, magazines and mirrors.
The second project called #Migrantes is about the condition of migrants, migrations and wars and it's started in 2013 with a short graphic novel about the Lampedusa shipwreck.

In closing, I'm one of the two founding members of Cantiere Nuovo, a cultural association based in Marina di Pisa that since 2012 brings contemporary art installations and exhibits in my native village, I'm a member of Corte Tripoli Cinematografica, a short movies cultural association based in Pisa and a member of the artist team based in Psia called Secondo Piano a Sinistra.
