Arne Maasik, Given Space/Spazio Dato, Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome, through 15 June 2014.
The exhibition in Rome is a exploration of the threshold concept in photography. With ‘Given Space/Spazio Dato’, I try to overcome this theme with a work which balances light and perspective. No matter what the represented subject is – a city, a tangle of vegetation, an empty room – it should embrace the observer and take him in front of an edge. Dissolving the idea of space, the threshold itself becomes a sort of moving door. I have chosen to print the shots on canvas because it is a surface where there is no flow, it absorbs the light and gives more density to the images.
Given Space/Spazio Dato, Complesso del Vittoriano, Rome, is open through 15 June 2014.
