Effearte is proud to present Qualcuno deve gridare che costruiremo le

piramidi, the solo show by Luca Coser.

The title of the show is derived by Nostalghia by the Russian movie director

Tarkovskij and it refers to the so called “speech by Domenico”. He is the insane

main character who declares his own thruth rising up from the monument at the

centre of Campidoglio square in Rome. Luca Coser chose this quote because

he shares the same movie directorʼs faith into the deep and superior values of

the art, into its projecting back to the future energy which pursues through a

constant work on the memory of art itself.

His poetics is based on the principle of art quoting itself. Thus, the artist claims

that art itself could become “salvation”, meaning the sacredness of everyday life

far away from any religious dogma.

The artist uses artistic quotations based on movies, music and literature as a

communicative filter for his personal point of view of the world.

The most recent series of both small and large works will be exhibited in the

gallery in addition to his latest editorial project based on covers of well known or

unpublished books by important artists such as Alex Katz, Lucio Fontana, Jim

Dine and Alberto Burri. All of these books are printed by the new publishing

house “Lunatico&Son”.
