LAPO SORRIDE (he/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, fragmented and polyphonic creature.
They creates immersive environments and portal-like objects made of rug, clay, dirt, branches and smells, wax and stitching techniques as well as printed digital environments, granular and tense surfaces, sensitive walls, interzones and organic textures, with sustainable practices implemented with sound manipulation techniques to alter the perception of time and space.
Lapo is also a digital surfer interested in the potentiality of rabbit-holes and community building within the realm of the dark web. They investigate re-enchantment strategies to facilitate collective healing and embrace New Materialism theories, which prioritize post-human figurations over traditional forms of representation. Role play in this research is the aim to foster an affirmative mindset combined with romantic speculations.
Their artistic projects embed life itself. They advocate for an approach grounded in the everyday existence, surfing into unconventional (illegal) networks and language/behavioral modification as a means to challenge the patriarchal system and construct alternative realities.
