Luca Valerio (1966) is a lecturer in Video Editing and Coordinator of the School of New Art Technologies of the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He took part in the 12th Rome Quadriennale (1996) and was involved in the MACRO Asilo project in Rome with the installation HomeSweetHome (2019).
His practice branches from sculptures to videos, from photographs to installations. He uses everyday objects, usually taken from his private life, to create ‘assemblages’.
His works concern identity and has often worked on the idea of ‘home’. The boundaries between private and public life blur in his installations. Home, a safe space with a clear identity, is transformed and often defaced. By using and recontextualising furniture and objects from his own home, he challenges the space’s identity and also deals with the crisis of the concept of authorship.
