Artist Lulù Nuti collaborates with Apolonia Sokol
Lulù Nuti questions what being in the world means in the 21st century. Her work deals with the feeling of responsibility and powerlessness that are engendered by the age we live in and affect human beings. She observes people’s change in habits, their perception of reality, and their relationship with nature.
Her practice is based on a strong belief in the intelligence of matter, in its power of being a vehicle for sensitive information, which goes beyond the limits of words and language. The artist experiments with various construction materials, often combining them with natural elements, creating sculptures and installations that dialogue with space.
Lulù Nuti has exhibited in Italy and abroad in public and private institutions including the Biwako Biennale (Fairy Tale, Japan, 2012) ; the Cité Internationale des Arts (Biennale du dessin, Paris, 2014) ; La Panacée (MFW, MO.CO., Montpellier, 2018) ; the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in New Delhi (Living in the Chtulucene, India, 2019); the Museo CAMUSAC (Rilevamenti 2, Cassino, 2020) and in galleries including Galleria Alessandra Bonomo (NUTI.SCARPA, Rome, 2021); Galleria Franco Noero (The Milky Way 5, Turin, 2020); and the Studio La Città (La Musée 2, Verona, 2020).
Among her solo shows we highlight the site-specific exhibition Sistema, at the archeological site Case Romane del Celio (Rome, 2015) and Calcare il Mondo (2018) and Terrain Amère (2021) at Galerie Chloé Salgado (Paris).
