Luigi Coppola

Diso (LE), 1972. Lives in Brussels and Salento

Coppola is an artist who works in performance, video and public art. His research is oriented towards participatory practices and politically motivated actions, which attempt to activate new collective imaginations, starting with the analysis of specific social, political and cultural contexts, as in the case of the Parco comune dei frutti minori (2014‒ongoing) in rural areas of Castiglione d’Otranto in Puglia. After some initial experiences in experimental theater, the artist went on to create mechanisms for relationships and the representation of social dynamics, as in On Social Metamorphosis (2012). Coppola has developed a variety of projects and performances and has exhibited in various international contexts, including: Kumu Art Museum Tallin; Teatro Continuo, Milan; Parckdesign Biennale, Brussels (2016); Festival Santarcangelo dei Teatri; MAXXI, Rome; Athens Biennale (2015); Teatro Valle Occupato, Rome (2013); Steirscher Herbst, Graz; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris (2012); Extra City Antwerpen (2012); Biennale Democrazia, Turin (2009).
