Residence project
"Nonprofessional artist"

Luciana's work in the last 5 years revolves around the methods of presentation and dissemination through which art circulates, on the artistic discourse when navigating territories of massive diffusion (tv - internet) and its critical and didactic role.

He is interested when contemporary art, one of the most exclusive and impenetrable cultural industries, opens up to a non-specialized public and at times becomes a popular and massive phenomenon (text about it>). The contemporary artist immersed in celebrity culture, generates followers from unexpected origins and gets into the game of mass fashions and fan culture.
