Edition No. 50

Luca Buvoli: Flipbook 2 (from Flying – Practical Training for Beginners), 1999-2010

This Edition, created by Italian-born artist Luca Buvoli for Utopia Matters, is conceptualized as a guide to the realization one of humankind’s oldest dreams—that of flying. Flipbook 2 is taken from the final sequence of Buvoli’s eponymous film and is conceived as a rapidly rendered, comic book–like storyboard whose protagonist ascends into actual clouds at the book’s conclusion.
Buvoli’s work is characterized by the utilization of different mediums, scales, and dimensions, and explores the interrelated themes of flight, the comic book superhero, and Italian Futurist and fascist histories and strategies, as well as their psychological and philosophical ramifications. For Utopia Matters, Buvoli has also conceived a three-dimensional installation along the outer facade of the Deutsche Guggenheim that conveys the speed of the heroic flyer to passersby. With Flipbook 2, the dream of flying is returned to the second dimension of the page, while simultaneously existing in the fourth dimension—time.
