Lorenzo Vitturi Materia Impura

18 October 2019 - 19 January 2020

Foam, Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam, presents Materia Impura, a major exhibition of the work of Lorenzo Vitturi.  

The exhibition brings together ten years of Lorenzo Vitturi's research combining earlier projects Dalston Anatomy, Droste Effect, Debris and Other Problems and Money Must Be Made. It also presents the first output of Vitturi’s new work Caminantes (Spanish for walkers). This project draws inspiration from his family history and explores the encounters between and merging of different cultures. In the 1960s, his father, originally from Venice, crossed the Atlantic to open a Murano glass factory in Peru.

Playing with the combination of reality and fiction, mixing photography, sculpture, painting and performance, Vitturi builds temporary sets in his studio, drawing from specific geographical environments. His projects focus on cities including Lagos, London and Venice and selected areas in Peru; on their colours and shapes and the communities that inhabit them. Vitturi uses selected materials in his sculptures and photographs to investigate the passage of time in a globalised world, capturing its mutations.
