Exhibitions have always been an important way for Gasket to share the work of the amazing artists we’ve had the pleasure of working with, but we’re delighted to finally have an opportunity to enter the world of International Art Fairs.
We can think of few better ways to do this by working with one of our favourite and most talented artists, Diego Ferrari. Having exhibited Diego’s work as part of Leap-Second, we now have an opportunity to present Diego and his work as part of the prestigious Milan Image Art Fair later this month.
MIA – MILAN IMAGE ART FAIR
MILANO – SUPERSTUDIO PIÙ
23rd – 25th MAY 2014
conceived and directed by Fabio Castelli
‘MIA Fair is back: 180 Italian and international exhibitors will present established artists and emerging
photographers from all over the world, according to its unique original formula: one booth for each
artist – each artist with his/her own catalogue.’
We will be showing a selection of Diego’s beautiful images, including some new work which has not been exhibited before. Diego writes of his work;
‘In urban space I see an expression of a particular society’s values regarding democracy, identity and citizenship. Public and private space are key elements of the imagined communities we call nations. This project investigates the individual’s relationship with their private habitat and the social built environment. From these two realms we construct our personal meaning of place. The private and the social realm are not segregated, of course; but the spatial ambiguity created between the personal subjectivity and social objectivity is a fertile platform to critically elaborate a psychological as well as bodily and metaphysical relationship to space. A lived in space always transcends geometry and measurability.’
We are delighted that Diego will be joining Gasket members Michael Frank and Johannes Rigal at MIA, and please come and say hello if you’re lucky enough to be in Milan during this fantastic event.
The International Photography Art Fair will be open to the public from Friday 22nd May until Sunday the 25th and location and entry details can be found here.
