We are pleased to announced we are hosting the launch of the second edition of Dalston Anatomy by Lorenzo Vitturi. As you may know the first edition sold out very fast, so we hope this gives those who missed it the first time round the opportunity to get their hands on it.
Format: Hardback, clothbound
Lorenzo Vitturi's work is often found at the intersection of sculpture and photography and his latest project, Dalston Anatomy, saw him spend time in London’s Ridley Road Market taking pictures, making sculptures and creating collages with materials and objects he found amongst the debris of the marketplace. Vitturi’s process is largely concerned with the creation, consumption and preservation of images. The makeshift sculptures he created mimic the organic and temporary nature of the market, and their documentation is the way in which they endure after diminishing. The book is bound in exquisite Vlisco fabrics in bright patterns that are reminiscent of African markets and accompanied by a poem by Sam Berkson that layers voices from the market to draw on its disjointed and surreal atmosphere.
We hope you can join us for the celebrations!
