Luca Pozzi at Kabe Contemporary in Miami

Miami, FL

Last night, a show of new work by Italian artist Luca Pozzi, who divides his time between Milan and New York, opened at Kabe Contemporary in Miami’s Wynwood art district.  The show is titled, “Waiting 4 Oracle [1560-2012]”  and it’s his first solo show in the U.S.

Here, the twenty-nine-year-old Pozzi is concerned with time.  Through the use of varied media – painting, photography, sculpture and technology – his works reference periods of profound paradigm shift. He begins with a 1560 Renaissance painting and then touches on the mathematical revolution of 1931, scientific breakthroughs of the 1970s, the 1973 Physics Nobel Prize and Optical Art and Arte Povera until he lands in the present day.

Pozzi is moving towards a new “augmented” artistic perspective in his work, which is partly inspired by the Men in Black film franchise, yet more influenced by science and mathematics.  A review of Pozzi’s work from earlier this year explained:

By using the imagery of contemporary art, Pozzi hopes that he is opening up the concepts of theoretical physics to the general public: “The main idea behind this work is that the knowledge is for everybody.” He hopes that by using “different platforms, different languages, different doors” he will convey the message to as many people as possible.
