Eine Melange aus Rock, Jazz und Beauty. Luz, eine postmoderne Art von Fusion mit hoher Dichte, aber unvorhersagbarer Richtung. Als Trio in Rom geboren entstammen sie alle dem Impro-Kollektiv “Franco Ferguson“ der italienischen Hauptstadt. Jeder für sich hat mit maßgeblichen italienischen Künstlern gearbeitet (Enrico Rava’s Tribe, Gronge, Caterina Palazzi). Seit Dezember 2012 wird das Trio durch Tomeka Reid am Cello ergänzt (AACM, Anthony Braxton, Nicole Mitchell), wohl eine der wichtigsten Meldungen aus der aktuellen Chicagoer Jazz-Szene.

“The Illusion of the perfect century” is a project of paintings and installations by Lapo Simeoni, developed for CORPO 6, that activates a deconstruction of the iconic apparatus of the contemporaneity – using images taken by various media of mass communication -. In order to depict the dynamic of the actual social scenario.
Lapo Simeoni, through an alchemic process of transmutation, defines, in this way, a new syntactic interrelation between the selected iconic “objects”. Producing a reappropriation. A rewriting. Defining a lucid vision.
What emerges is a “fresco” of the social conflicts. The friction within the “social body”. The vivid contradictions.
The themes, taken under observation, include the problematic of borders. Assumed as symbolic figure of research and discussion. The limen between individuals, classes and politic configurations. A new scene is therefore represented without mystifications. A vivid, and cruel snapshot of the nowaday reality.
A formal tract, that unifies the painting and installative practice of “The Illusion of the perfect century”, is the orange flu painting. A visual attractor that reinforces the process of individuation.
A new perspective rushes to the surface of the communal acceptance of the facts.
Defining the obscene and peremptory illusion of the perfect century.
Born in Orbetello, Grosseto in 1979. Studied at theSaint Martins school in London, where he completedthe Foundation Course in Art and Design in 2002. From the outset he has worked in a broad range of expressive media, from mural painting to photography
and the creation of painting-installations, a hallmark of his work. He also shows a profound sensitività to the use of different materials, including steel, plexiglas and recycled materials, alongside light installations. Simeoni describes the basic themes
of his artistic research as follows: the effects of globalized consumerism, symbols and stereotypes of Italian history.
In 2008 he won the international MOVIN’ UP project, organized by the GAI organization, holding his first double personal exhibition in Beijing (China), curated by Filippo Salviati. In 2009 he organized and participated in the exhibition 7 ITALIAN VISION in Basel during Art|40|Basel (Swiss). In 2010 he held his first personal exhibition in Rome, “Mind the Gap” curated by Francesca Franco at the Altri Lavori in Corso gallery.
In 2011 participated in the exhibition ARS APOCALIPSIS - KUNST UND KOLLAPS KUNSTVEREIN KREIS GUTERSLOH, (Germany), curated Malte & Henning Boecker, whit international and historical artist like Gherard Richter and Albrecht Dürer.
EXP PROJECT develops a syncretic tension between diverse languages.
Live sets and performances interacting within the current exhibition develop a free and alive platform of expression.
EXP taking place within the current exhibition, develops a procedure of synergy and expressive intensification.
