Luca Frei, born 1976 in Lugano, Switzerland, lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. His work, which includes a wide range of media such as drawing, collage, painting, installation, performance, video, and photography, often develops in response to a specific context in the form of architectural interventions, narrative environments or exhibition structures that invite public participation and dialogue. His consistent thematic preoccupations encompass the measurement of time, the relationship between the body and architecture, as well as the juxtaposition of private and public spaces.
“It has been great to be able to be at Capacite and be part of it, you should be proud of what you have accomplished in these 20 years!! Many challenges of course, but what a great experience this has been for so many people!”
I am currently based in Berlin and organize curatorial projects here and abroad independently.
“Before Capacete I sporadically had contact with the art world already, but had no further interest to work in the arts professionally. That changed after my time in Rio de Janeiro. I organized an exhibition with the support of Helmut in Lidice and started to work as an assistant for Daniel Steegmann Mangrané. The numerous encounters with artists, curators and theorists from all over the world continuously shaped my interest in a more complex and critical approach to understand the world we live in. I remain grateful for the 3 years that I accompanied Capacete’s activities and I am extremely happy for all the dear friends that I made during that time. Obrigado a todxs”
