Curated by Walter Guadagnini and Giangavino Pazzola

The young Turin photographer presents an unpublished series of nine large images, which each time immortalize a large sphere, 4.5 meters in diameter, immersed in ever-different environments and architectures. Each landscape establishes a dialogic relationship with the solid, enhancing its ability to alter the perception of the environment. These subjects, albeit immobile, create in each photograph a single dynamic whole, which will persist over time thanks to the ability of the photographic medium to freeze the instant in an image.

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

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

Inauguration: Thursday 7 March, 6:00 pm, Project Room
