As in many logos, L is the first letter of our names: Lorenzo (Baldi) and Liliana (Carugati). We both are passionate about fine arts and architecture, with a huge interest in the avant-garde styles and movements. Liliana studied and taught arts at school and Lorenzo sometimes writes about it on catalogs and websites. During the eighties we co-founded an art gallery in Milan, which had a brief yet intense activity. Of it we kept some photographic memories, which you can see clicking on the button below.
Since 1983, we make corporate videos for a living. But, meeting some artists (and friends), it happpened we produced videos about their works and exhibitions.This website was born as a collection of these videos.
It begins from 1989, with Ale Guzzetti's Bonfire, it goes on with the videos dedicated to Giusepe Maraniello and Gaetano Grillo.
This website has been created in order to share our work, meet new friends and produce more videos about art and architechture and that’s what we did during the past five years. As well as filming artists and exhibitions, in collaboration with Ermanno Cristini, we created the web-series "Conversational Interviews” a theoretical insight from persons variously involved in the italian art world.
In this website you find many photo galleries coming from our digital archive and a feature - “A Strolling iPhone, at exhibitions” that we use to publish on L&L Videoforart's Facebook page.
Since 2019 we started a partnership with MA*GA Museum, in Gallarate, filming exhibitions.
We are definitely not video artists, we make documentaries or video clips, trying to analytically read the artworks and show them through our eyes and our technical skills.
And, on the technical side, the videos belong to all geological eras of independent video production: from U-matic to Betacam to HDV and then solid state HD acquisition and 4K. From tape-to-tape editing, through Avid Media Composer, to Final Cut Pro X and Davinci Resolve. From pure videocameras to cinematic ones.
So definition and quality of the videos are very different, as is their style, since each one has been created working in a very close relationship with the artist, the gallery or the institution and their communication needs.
