Edson Luli

Edson Luli was born in Shkoder (Albania) in 1989, lives and works in Milan.
Luli is graduated in New Technologies of Art (BA) and in Cinema and Video (MA) at Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Milan.

Thought is what precedes everything that has happened, is happening and will happen. Thought is all around us, all man-made environment and interventions are a product of our thought.

By offering the public a participative type of gaze, Luli proposes, through his practice, to explore and observe what is happening when we are engaged in the activity of thinking. The interaction between the senses and the artwork generate new meanings which contradicts our common senses and establishing a new perceptual relationship with the artwork.
Luli’s research lies in an intersection between ontology and epistemology, the relationship between the observer and the observed and how all these factors influence and depend on each other. How can we create new and saner ways of representing and interacting with reality?
Luli is concerned with understanding how we evaluate, with the non-verbal, inner life of each individual, with how each of us experiences and makes sense of our experiences, including how we use language and how language uses us.
In his practice he uses different media that vary from print and photography to film and installations always maintaining a dialectical relationship between form and concept.
By creating logical structures, Luli tries to avoid the clashing of value structures created by metaphors and invites the viewer to engage by applying their value structures to the logical ones and create a space-time where one can doubt and explore in depth the conditioning created by the culture around us.

To create awareness of this temporal process where perceptions, abstractions, concepts and mental models arise, becomes an urgency in today’s turmoil and conflictual way of thinking.
