Marcantonio Lunardi


Exploring the boundaries of public space and the limits of power

Lunardi was born in Italian city of Lucca, 1968. After acquiring a Masters degree at the Scuola del Festival dei Popoli in Florence with the directors Michael Glawogger, Sergei Dvortsevoy, Thomas Heis and Andrés Di Tella, he experimented with a language akin to the Cinéma Vérité video-art. He has exhibited his works in prominent institutions in all corners of the world, including Tokyo, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Milan and New York.

His body of work blends a sharp social and political critique with innovative technique. In Public Space (2014), he reveals that the womb of a pregnant woman sometimes becomes a “public space”. It represents a reflection on the preponderance of the society of the image on all the areas of our life; a preponderance which goes to the extreme of the moment of conception.

In Trilogy of Decadence (2011), a film in three acts about the decadence of power, he investigates again the boundaries of cinema and video-art. In Srebrenica Dance (2011) he delves with a politically-charged theme (the massacre of Srebrenica) in order to express the irrational nature of humans.
