Comments: new copy, 19 x 26cm, edition of 700, signed and numbered

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.

LORENZO VITTURI lives and works between London and Milan. After studying photography, he undertook a two year residency at Fabrica. Formerly a cinema set painter, Vitturi has brought this experience into his photographic practice, which revolves around site-specific interventions.
