closed Parmenide. Photographs by Lorenzo Pingitore

The show

Curated by Walter Guadagnini and Giangavino Pazzola

The young photographer from Turin presents an unprecedented series of nine large images, which immortalize each time a large sphere, 4.5 meters in diameter, immersed in ever-changing environments and architectures. Each landscape establishes a dialogic relationship with the solid, enhancing its ability to alter the perception of the environment. These subjects, even if they are immobile, create in each photograph a single dynamic whole, which will persist in time thanks to the photographic medium's ability to stop the moment in an image. 

With Parmenide (2018), the photographer creates digital shots through which he reflects both on photographic language and on human being: starting from the thought of the homonymous Greek philosopher, complexity and changes in the physical world are illusory, while the uniqueness is affirmed. and the immutability of Being. Man transforms places with his presence and not vice versa. At the same time, Pingitore recounts the journey made in well known and lesser known places in Italy, in which he documented different categories of landscape: from archeological to industrial, from cultural to natural. The Palazzo del Lavoro in Turin, the Lago Verde in Bardonecchia, the Villa Pisani in Stra, an old sugar factory in Avezzano and an industrial area in a state of neglect in Terni are just some of the realities that form a catalog of places joined together by the presence of the sphere. 

The exhibition is organized under the patronage of: Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, Villa Pisani National Museum and Monterano Regional Nature Reserve.
