Lucia Pizzani @ Photofusion

21 September 2017 - 20 October 2017

Broader Implications,” features the work of artist Lucia Pizzani.  The exhibition showcases two bodies of work made in response to the on-going crisis in Pizzani’s home country of Venezuela. “Inventario Personal” (Personal Inventory), inspired by Anna Atkins’ pioneering book, is installed as a mural made up of cyanotypes imprinted with scarce (or completely absent) health and hygiene products. This is a new version of a mural that was originally exhibited in Caracas, alongside the work of Carlos Cruz-Diez. “Cesta Basica” (Basic Food Basket) is a series of stark photograms based on the list of basic items a family needs to survive for a month, an economic concept well known in developing countries. Currently in Venezuela, fifteen salaries would be required to buy a month’s worth of essentials. In his exhibition text, Rodrigo Orrantia observes “Pizzani’s basket is hollow, evidencing the absence of products like eggs, rice and meat, all referencing Venezuela’s bleak basic products list.
