Annalaura di Luggo
Annalaura di Luggo (b. Naples, 1970) is a multimedia artist and painter based in Naples. In 2019 she was invited to the 58th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia (Dominican Republic Pavilion) and in 2018 she is invited at the ONU in New York with her multimedia solo show Blind Vision which inspired the creation of the homonymous award winning documentary based on the artist’s enlightening journey with visually impaired people. Fusing aesthetics, performance, and technology, the artist creates visuallystriking works that invite dialogue about social issues. She has, with dexterity and empathy, tackled incarceration (“Never Give Up”), topics of the marine world (“Sea Visions / 7 Viewpoints”), human rights (“Human Rights Vision”, for Kennedy Foundation), blindness (“Blind Vision” presented at the United Nations and at the Italian Consulate in NY) nature and biodiversity ("Genesis" present at the 58th Venice Biennale) and environmental issues (“Napoli Eden” artistic and cinematographic project). To create Napoli Eden di Luggo used recycled aluminum to construct four site-specific monumental installations open to the public thatencouraged debate on sustainability in her hometown, Naples. This project inspired the dictor Bruno Colella in the creation of the docufilm Napoli Eden, which tells the artist's creative experience.
