Giorgio Laveri, is an Italian artist already present in many museums, a consecration of more than 45 years of artistic life. Giorgio was born in 1950 in Savona. Actor, assistant director, stage assistant, director, he directed his first film in 1978. Giorgio Laveri is a passionate person who has always given without counting. Generous, the human remains his priority. Very young he discovered ceramics by one of the masters of the discipline: Lucio Fontana who introduced him to what would become his great passion.
Giorgio has a magnificent memory of this period of his life, following in the footsteps of the great masters, feeding on them and paying tribute to them, nothing more beautiful for the artist.
Giorgio remained the multidisciplinary artist of his early days, linking cinema, theatre, painting and ceramics. Since 1974 he has written and directed 11 films and more than 19 plays, including the "Mariage Bet", winner of the Critics' Prize at the "Cinema at Home" of the Rome Film Festival.
In 1990, he went further in his research by creating his first play on the theme "Ceramics - Light - Movement", in which "actors and ceramics interact on stage to create a luminous choreography".
In 1993, he joined the French group Art mobil with whom he planned a series of events in Italy and France, such as the signing with Patrick Moya and Véronique Champollion of the Manifesto of the Mediterranean Artistic Movement, always in evolution.
In 1996, he founded the Department of Mental Health of Genoa, "II Giardino del Mago" with whom he produced a series of works related to theatre and experimental cinema.
In total, there are more than 200 events organized between cinema, theatre, shows and exhibitions.
In 2017 Italy pays tribute to him with an exhibition of exceptional scope.
The gallery's words
I discovered "The lipstick" of Giorgio on a show in Paris in 2012, This remarkable work, hid an artist of great sensitivity to the atypical course. I met Giogio a few hours later on the stand and left with his works. This confidence given spontaneously touched me a lot. A few years have allowed us to know each other better and to find as much pleasure working together. Giorgio offers contemporary works, objects of life that take meaning and life in his hands.
