Luca Trevisiani stamps images derived from antique herbaria and design magazines on objects with heterogeneous surfaces (textiles, clothing, tropical leaves, minerals).
Luca Trevisani explores the dimension of transience, fragility and metamorphosis of nature, isolating the perceptive-sensorial aspect in the human cognitive and experiential process. Playing between the three-dimensionality and two-dimensionality of bodies, he analyzes the structural properties of vision and the reduction of the real into perceived forms. The name of the project is based on the eponymous hotel in Palermo where the body of Raymond Roussel
was found, French writer and playwright among the fathers of “pataphysics
”, the science of imaginary constructions. Passionate defender of freedom of expression, Roussel is the symbol of the revolutionary power of the imagination, a concept present in the whole of Trevisani's artistic research.
