Massimiliano Moro.

Round trip and outbound

Massimiliano Moro | Ida y vuelta e ida
15.02. >> 28.02.2019
Opening: Friday, February 15th at 7pm
Included in OFFLlumBcn 2019

L&B gallery presents “Ida y vuelta e ida”, the first individual exhibition of the artist Massimiliano Moro in Spain.

The exhibition, curated by Laura Olea López, transform the gallery’s space through light interventions made specifically for the location in Carrer Àlaba 58.

Within the practice of light art, Moro uses the space and architectural elements of the environment, but it’s at the contact of his light sculptures when a new ambient is created, inciting an evocative synaesthesia and challenging the ability of interpretation and understanding of space.

The title of the exhibition suggests a dual path capable of accommodating the view to gradually disfigure the look with shapes, colors, and perspectives of this new installation, conceived to be part of the OFFLlum BCN 2019 festival.

MASSIMILIANO MORO. Born in Cittadella (Italy) in 1986 and currently lives and works between Lugano (Switzerland) and Barcelona (Spain).

In his artistic practice he seeks the creation of new equilibriums between light and architecture through the practices of design and sculpture. Its interdisciplinary methodology results in interventions that modify the perception of space.

At the European Institute of Design in Barcelona he obtained the Master IED in Architectural Lighting, where he currently teaches Light Art.During his student years, he collaborated with the international artist Tom Carr, participating in the creation of the TCTeamwork group with which he made several exhibitions (Centro Huarte en Navarra, Centre Cultural El Carme en Badalona, Museu de Tortosa, among others).
Since 2015, he has been working independently carrying out exhibitions throughout Europe (Palermo, Milan, Rome, Lugano, Padua, Banska Stiavnica, ...). He has also collaborated in numerous projects such as 080 Barcelona Fashion 2016, Circolo Turba, Artificio and Gioielleria Preziosi, and his works are part of various private collections.
