Lorenzo Senni presents ‘Windows To Look In’ a project curated by Threes and selected by Italian Council

WINDOWS TO LOOK IN, a project by the artist Lorenzo Senni, one of the winners of the twelfth edition of Italian Council (2023), the prestigious international programme of the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea of the Ministry of Culture that promotes Italian art in the world.

The project is part of Lorenzo Senni’s research path, which in the past has dealt with themes such as voyeurism and vandalism. In WINDOWS TO LOOK IN, the artist will create a work consisting of 14 photographs and a musical composition, exploring the concept of “false reflectivity”, conferred to the work by the special paint with which he creates the photographed subjects. These evoke the act of looking and looking at oneself, the need to compromise one’s self.

The project originates from a period of research and study in Los Angeles with American photographer John Divola. During this collaboration, Senni deepened his understanding of Divo- la’s photographic technique, which emerged as a significant source of inspiration for the entire project. In particular, the famous photographic series from the 1970s entitled ‘Dead Mirrors’ plays a key role in his influence.

The work will be previewed with an exhibition at the Fundação de Serralves in Porto and the entire project will be promoted internationally through a series of dedicated events, realised in collaboration with the Bourse de Commerce in Paris and the MUNCH in Oslo.

At the end of the international promotion, WINDOWS TO LOOK IN will be exhibited at MAXXI L’Aquila Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, and will become part of its permanent collection. The entire artistic process will be documented in a film curated by Courtney Harrenmberg and a publication that will be presented at the FONDAZIONE ICA MILANO
