Gemis Luciani is a talented Italian artist currently living and working between Italy and Berlin. He graduated from Accademia delle Belle Arti in Bologna (IT) in 2005 and started collaborating with Teatrino Clandestino - a well known fringe theatre company from Italy - as set designer and performer.
His research focuses on the expressive potential of an act of formal reduction. By manipulating, de-composing and re-assembling common objects such as design magazines, phone books and 3D architectural renderings, he reconfigures them in newly built systems of shapes and surfaces. His collages and spatial, large scale installations are meticulously created, and rely on a strong minimalist aesthetic.
