FEDERICO LUGER

 

Line Concept

For the featured works, Federico Luger draws inspiration from different characters of the history and theory of contemporary art, especially from conceptualism (Joseph Kosuth and André Cadere) and minimalism (Fred Sanback). He uses the combination of lines and words, which he takes from different comic books, so that the dialogues are incomplete, or arbitrarily combined. These lines float in space, together with the words and some images that, in the ensemble, form a visual dialogue. These dialogues are incomplete, almost nonsensical; at the same time, the lines are abstractions, of Cadere’s stick, of the stick as a symbol of power and knowledge. The colours and the words come together at one point in which, for Luger, the artistic event has its origin: the viewer gets actually in touch with the work because of the need of fulfilling the sense, of imagining what is its meaning.
