Eight Italian artists take part at the third edition of Look Art Festival: Alessandro Amaducci, auroraMeccanica, Louis Bode, Cilema Reisen#, InFlux, Claudia Maina, SantiFantiFilm, Sara Taigher. The electronic art of the Look At Festival fills a disused work place, the ex Manifattura Tabacchi, making the enchantment of revival through lights, colours and sounds.
The exhibition ranges from the video-sculpture to the interactivity, from the video-environment to the sound-installation, with a glance to the animation and the performance. The unifying theme of the exhibition is the body as a variable presence and visible track of the culture of the contemporary emergency. The select works narrate stories about us and about the world around us, about their mutual and certain influence.
The catalogue contains the schedules of the exhibited works, the biographies of the artists and, as an innovation, some pages are dedicated to the collateral musical events which take place at the same time of the Festival.
