Loredana Longo (Catania, 1967) lives and works in Milano.
Multitalented artist and performer, Loredana creates installations with different techniques: video, photography, sculpture and scenography. For many years she is been working on a concept that she defines as “ Aesthetics of the destruction “. In 2005 she makes a work series: "The Explosions", real theatrical sets where she builds middle-class interiors to let them explode and then perfectly rebuild them. After that, other series as “Floors” follow; they are cement floors where she incorporates different objects as a complaint of the massive use of the impoverished cement in Sicily. In the last years her work is oriented through social and political issues with performances and installations, documented by videos and photographies. Her favorite medium is fire with whom she writes and digs every surface.
