LUDOVICA GIOSCIA

Website of London based artist Ludovica Gioscia represented by Baert Gallery (Los Angeles) and VITRINE (London/Basel). The studio is a magical portal in Gioscia’s practice, through which artworks from other dimensions or from the future appear, and past works are constantly reconsidered. Strongly process-based, Gioscia’s oeuvre alchemically fuses everyday experiences with approaches and scenarios commonly found in science fiction.

The Infinite Present is my new non-linear modus operandi, which I adopted in 2016.

There are many actors within the Infinite Present’s ecosystem which are made from fabric, and they perform a number of roles.

This section houses paper and wallpaper works created as a by-product of the Giant Decollages or from the debris of the latter. The paper maches, the most recent evolution in this line of enquiry, are alchemical compressions of energy and experience.
