L’opera di Luca Vitone tra immagine e parola sulle tracce di Joseph Cornell e Georges Perec

Translated title of the contribution: Maps, lists and classifications: The work of Luca Vitone between image and word on the traces of Joseph Cornell and Georges Perec

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article examines the fundamental relationship between word and image in Luca Vitone’s artistic research and practice. In particular, it analyses and tries to assess the relationship between images (including photographs and maps) with specific verbal forms as lists, classifications and categories and suggests that these verbal forms in contemporary artworks are employed as artistic techniques that engage with traditional artistic genres (portrait, landscape and genre-painting). Leuzzi traces two fundamental sources of inspiration in Vitone’s use of the list and classification: the American artist Joseph Cornell and the Oulipo writer Georges Perec. The author focuses on the role and nature of the relationship between verbal lists and images in some of Vitone’s most renown artworks including Wide City (1998), Wider City (2006), Liberi tutti! (1996, 1997, 2008), Nulla da dire solo da essere (2004) and Nel nome del padre (with Cesare Viel, 2001).
