(b. 1982, Italy) lives and works in Paris. Luca Resta is a visual artist; his research questions the concept of "repetition" conceived as a phenomenon that characterizes our society. The ontological value of repetition is investigated in all his works in relation to contemporary dynamics. The act of collecting characterizes his production and becomes a fully-rounded aspect of his artistic practice. His collections are made up of everyday objects that are often "disposable", a trace of the consumerism that still defines our present, and also of sounds that he collects in urban contexts and archives as unheard acoustic details that he lets emerge from the chaotic ensemble of our cities.
