At the age of 30, Luca Izzo moved from Italy to France, where he was attracted and inspired by different art forms. Over the years, he has tried – successfully, in fact – to merge attributes of those different disciplines into his photographic work. His vast oeuvre is a constant experiment in which cinema, painting and, of course, photography put the artistic structures and contours of the 20th century under high tension.
Humankind longs for constant evolution. He wants to dominate and shape the reality around him. He tries to transcend his physical, existential limits and never give up. But in the end, he often gets stuck in a deterministic form of the human condition. In his sculptural series The Wall, Luca Izzo offers a clever, confrontational look at the boundaries we encounter in life – every single day.
