This exhibition features Italian photographer Guido Guidi’s photographs of the Brion family mausoleum in Italy, considered to be architect Carlo Scarpa’s masterpiece.

The artist’s 54 colour photographs reveal the beauty of the funerary complex, its clean architectural lines, and the poetic nature of Scarpa’s work. By concentrating on particular architectural features, Guidi invites the viewer to look beyond the whole. “In essence, I considered Scarpa’s architecture not only as a manufactured object, but also as a machine through which to look at time. Or rather, architecture in its ‘becoming,’ as shadows on a wall that recall volumetric projections drawn in countless mutations on a sheet of paper,” he explains.
