‘Knaves of Radiance (Bolan Edition)’ is a new chapter of the ongoing Knaves of Radiance saga by performance artist Luca Bosani, specifically designed in response to the Studio Weave pavilion in Nine Elms. Bosani’s interest lies in cutting through the conventions of communication, causing stereotypes to collapse and visual lexicons to be reconfigured. Codes of masculinity are hacked, triggering unexpected configurations, proto-choreographies and hybridization. Performance, fashion design and painting meet in the search for unexplored artistic territories; customised garments become canvases in motion while solitary bachelors pose as jacks of an unplayable deck of cards.
Luca Bosani is currently artist in residence and Fine Art tutor at Kensington and Chelsea College, London. In 2017 he obtained a MA in Performance (Contemporary Art Practice) at the Royal College Art, London.
