leone contini


Leone Contini (Florence, 1976), is a visual artist with an anthropological calling. He moves half-way between creative practices and ethnographic work. He applies methods and codes belonging to different disciplines, in order to convert it all into a continuum where writing, video-writing, lab activities and relations combine. His areas of interests usually relate to situations of contrast, marked by an identity complexity and ties of power. His conversational practice tends to problematize both the social subject to be analyzed and the relationship that is inevitably started with it. This trend in criticizing the main values of the artistic research itself leads to further enquiries upon the idea of authorship.
