A month-long event of photography, art installation and poetry.
Photo-sculptures by artist Lorenzo Vitturi, drawn from and presented at Ridley Road Market, as well as the gallery will be accompanied by poetry by Sam Berkson.
The exhibition goes beyond the walls of the Fishbar with a series of large format posters on walls in the market itself as well as the transformation of a stall in the market to a temporary art installation for the duration of the show. All in tandem with the exhibition at Fishbar.
'It became really important for me to take the work back into the community to complete the cycle. I see this whole event as the culmination of my year long process with Ridley Road.'
Working with material collected from the market, Vitturi assembles objects in his studio in a game where sculpture, collage and painting melt together. Raw matter is transformed into a world of surreal visions and sculptures with a precarious equilibrium and lasting sometimes just for few minutes.
On show from 24th May - 16th June 2013
