LUCAS DI PASCUALE
Lucas Di Pascuale´s practice develops between the limits of drawing, writing and reading; amongst editorial practice and teaching. His work is informed by the connections between the individual and the collective; as well as the intimate, the everyday life, the public and the historical. In recent years, he has directed his work toward concerns centered around the copy and the absence of the original, often drawing on autobiographical aspects or biographies of his affective environment in which writing, on occasion, serves as a trigger. Di Pascuale is interested in technique as a concept and in certain idea of the unfinished based on fragments proposed by his production. Montage, which is another important dimension in his work, functions both as a place of memory and of emptiness.
Born in 1968 in Córdoba, Argentina, Lucas Di Pascuale obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees at the Facultad de Artes de la Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina), where he currently teaches, and continued his studies attending various art residencies.
