Vortrag Architektur Klasse
Davide Quayola: Iconography / Geometry / Nature / Synthesis
Thursday, April 19 2018, 7pm, Aula
Davide Quayola employs technology as a lens to explore the tensions and equilibriums between seemingly opposing forces: the real and artificial, figurative and abstract, old and new. Constructing immersive installations, often at historically significant architectural sites, he engages with and reimagines canonical imagery through contemporary technology. Hellenistic sculpture, old master painting, and baroque architecture are some of the historical aesthetics that serve as a point of departure for Quayola's abstract compositions. His varied practice, all deriving from custom computer software, also includes audiovisual performance, video, sculpture, and works on paper.
Davide Quayola is an Italian visual artist based in London. His lecture will give an overview of his work/process/practice, showing works from the last few years across video, prints and sculptures.
