Italian-slovene artist Luca Vanello, born in Trieste and based in Brussels, is the first one to inaugurate the cycle of three site-specific projects curated by Lottozero textile laboratories for 2019 Casa Atelier artistic program at Museion, Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art in Bolzano.
Tired Eyes Dislike the Young, a site-specific installation activated by a performance, investigates the relationship between human beings and non-human entities during the process of bereavement, in the phase of processing or accepting pain: it is in this emotional turmoil that objects and materials acquire a particular relevance and meaning. The research ranges from a more intimate phenomenon of anthropomorphism, which triggers instinctive and impulsive emotional processes that tend to humanize inanimate elements in the attempt to overcome loss, to explore the impact of the latest digital technologies in today’s innumerable attempts to achieve immortality.
The exhibition is the result of various periods of residence by the artist at the Lottozero headquarters in Prato, between 2017 and 2018, and of the technical collaboration of renown companies of the textile district (Dell'Orco & Villani, Progetto Lana, Colle Group).
