Luciano Ori (Firenze, IT, 1928)
Luciano Ori was initiated into the art world at a very young age. In fact, when just twelve years old, he was already sketching the operetta La Gran Via for the Teatro della Pergola. After a first artistic training where he moved from post-metaphysical painting to geometric painting of Piet Mondrian, he began to approach the Gruppo 70. He joined the group in 1964 when, Miccini and Pignotti organized the “Second Convention on the subject of Art and Technology”, where the concept of Technological Poetry was born and which has in Ori one of his first promoters. From the technological poetics, Ori elaborates collage based entirely on a reworking of pre-existing material taken from magazines and newspapers. In the 1970s his interest was mainly focused on theatre and music. He edited a publication of the anthological text “Musica Visiva”, with contributions by Sylvano Bussotti, John Cage, Daniele Lombardi and Luciano Berio.
