“From a temple’s architectonic detail to an edible root, from a terracotta water tank to an aged tarpoil. By re-tracing these lines and shapes in my studio, I found myself travelling again, in another layer of personal transformation.”

“I found a parallelism with the Foundation’s method of bringing change to rural communities through the transformation of matter, in the form of weaving. Matter exerts a transformative power on those who transform it, and this is definitely true for my work.”

“When I build something like a sculpture, photography is a really essential tool. Photography becomes part of the construction process. It helps me decide on a point of view and how to create this relationship between the object I’m building and the camera. All the sculptures are made to be photographed and this relationship becomes interesting; how the shape is transformed by the point of view.”

“Everything, all the ideas, come from the streets. Then you have the second part of the process, in my studio. So you always have these two dimensions: the studio and the street. The idea is to transform these objects and take them out of their daily context, sometimes using colour, or artificial light, to create an abstract shape.”

Interview for Centre photographique Rouen
 
 

Lorenzo Vitturi (b. 1980, Venice, IT – lives in London, UK) works in photography, sculpture, installation and performance. Following his experience as a cinema set painter, Vitturi builds temporary sets and ephemeral sculptures, in studio and on location, using both organic and fabricated materials. Starting from specific geographical locations and encounters with local communities, his work explores informal economies and the merging of different cultures, focusing on the movement of objects and people. Recent solo exhibitions include Nulla è Puro at Centre Photographique Rouen Normandie, Dalston Anatomy at FOAM Museum, Amsterdam, at The Photographers’ Gallery, London, at Contact Gallery, Toronto, and at CNA, Luxembourg. Vitturi also participated to group exhibitions at MAXXI in Rome, at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, at Palazzo Reale, at La Triennale in Milan, at BOZAR in Brussels, at K11 Art Museum in Shanghai, and at Barbican Centre in London. Vitturi’s latest book Money Must Be Made w as published by SPBH Editions in September 2017.
