Alessandr Lupi’s artistic research centre starts from light and develops with
installations and new techniques where colur, space, and time blend dynamically.
Each work focuses on the concept of “inversion”, i.e. the possibility of offering the viewer a point of view contrary to the expected or foreseeable one, with works that explore the dichotomies light-shadow, present-past, interiorexterior, freedom-prison, life-death and cancel them out in the contemporary perception of the two aspects.

Each work is an invention and investigates in a different way the way we perceive reality,
each time trying to start from space and dialoguing with it.
His collaborations with scientists, physicists, philosophers, sociologists,
permeate his research in an attempt to create real perceptual,
poetic and immersive experiments in which the public can participate, relate and reflect.
His works have been exhibited in galleries, museums and public spaces.
Objects, sculptures and large installations that have in common

using a poetics that starts with archetypal elements, but seeks to explore unknown lands.
