1974 - Rome, Italy

Lamberto Teotino

He specialises in visual arts; his investigation is mainly developed by analyzing the nature of the image and its perceptual mechanisms. The main features of his work are the use of photography, technical and conceptual actions on archival images and the use of a philosophical approach to the image in the form of visual installations. What matters to the artist is the dissemination of meaning, paradox, the conditions of perceptive alteration and a new conceptual design. A kind of metaphysical displacement or deviation. In 2016 he wins the Combat Prize with the work Mary Shelley, while in 2015 he had ranked second and received a special mention for the work Ti ricordi Prohaska e di quando lo chiamavano Schneckerl? He enters the Luciano Benetton collection, after being invited to the project Imago Mundi in the Italian section curated by Luca Beatrice, followed by the publication of the volume Praestigium Italy II – contemporary artists from Italy, published by Fabrica. In 2014 he wins the Smartup Prize, organized by Optima S.p.A.

In 2013 he is invited to the group show entitled Save as by Kim? Contemporary Art Centre, the curator of the Latvian pavilion at the Venice Biennale; he is also a finalist at the Blumm Prize event presented at the Italian Embassy in Brussels; in the same year he is mentioned in the book The New Collectible Art Photography by Susan Zadeh, Thames & Hudson editions, among the artists that, in the last decade, have investigated the photographic image in a more innovative way. In 2012 the Eyemazing Printed Magazine, winner of the prestigius Lucie Awards, publishes the project sistema di riferimento monodimensionale which in 2011 had already received a special mention from the Talent Prize jury; always in 2012 he receives another special mention from the Francesco Fabbri Foundation for the work L’ultimo Dio.
