Luigi Ghirri / Aldo Rossi: Things Which Are Only Themselves presents a visual dialogue between two leading figures in contemporary Italian art and culture. Their discussion is based on a sympathy between photographer and architect that is grounded in a shared fascination for a region—the Padana of northern Italy—and a common belief both in the autonomous eye of the photographer and in the potential of that eye to reveal something new to the architect.
The exhibition brings together a selection of 39 photographs by Ghirri, as well as a montage of Polaroid photographs made by Rossi. Ghirri took a profound interest in the Polaroids taken by Rossi, seeing in them a concealed passion, the “secret” images of the architect. The images mix anonymous building facades with his own work, sacred subjects with billboards, the houses and interiors of a Shaker village with the baroque facades of churches in Lecce.
Curator: Paolo Costantini, CCA.
