Inside – Drik Dickinson

Inside #41, 2017

From Saturday 15 November 2017, Studio la Città will be hosting a new and previously unseen series of photographs by the artist Drik Dickinson, who was born in Venice but is Irish by adoption.
Inside is the title of this solo show which exhibits a selection of ten photos taken from the  series of the same name by the artist, someone who has always been intimately involved with the theme of Vanitas. In these latest works the representation of the transience of life and of the inexorable passing of time is enriched by completely artificial objects that the artist juxtaposes against traditional natural elements (such as flowers, grass, and leaves), so almost literally “staging” a composition in which what is real and what is not meld together and are difficult to separate by the observer’s eye.

Starts: 25 November 2017
Ends: 25 November 2017 – 5 January 2018
