Luciano Castelli — Self-portraits



Luciano Castelli

Past: March 26 → May 25, 2014

Luciano Castelli is an artist who expresses himself through a variety of media: painting, photography, video, sculpture and music.In the 1970s, he began to pose himself, and his self-portraits reveal a multi- facetted personality assuming different roles: death, an animal, an androgynous or mythical creature.

The exhibition presents a broad selection of self-portraits made between 1973 and 1986, as well as a monumental video/sculpture. It also reveals for the first time the correspondence between Luciano Castelli and Pierre Molinier after they met in 1974, and shows a hitherto unseen series of portraits of the artist made by Molinier.
