Lorenzo Vitturi Money Must be Made

Palazzo Pepoli Campogrande, Bologna
14 October - 28 November 2021

Lorenzo Vitturi's Money Must Be Made series is on view in Bologna, Italy, as part of Foto/Industria 2021, a photography bienial supported by Fondazione MAST and curated by Francesco Zanot.

Lorenzo Vitturi, who has always been interested in the encounter between different cultures, developed Money Must Be Made in a residence in Lagos upon the invitation of the African Artists Foundation. The work was set in Balogun, one of the largest street markets in the world, where Vitturi took some photographs and collected the materials, partly food, which later became the ingredients of sculptures and still lifes made in his studio. The result is an exhibition that investigates a fragile and boundless ecosystem, where tradition is confronted with the global economy (most of the objects sold at the market are ‘Made in China’ and the neighborhood in which it is located is dominated by the decadent Financial Trust House Tower). An ecosystem where individuals, often portrayed as strong and elegant equilibrists, are still a key factor.
