For the 2014 International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, Massimo Gardone’s imagery delivers Monumental, a collection of photographic images that offer an original reinterpretation of some classics by lighting brand Foscarini.
“The Guggenheim Museum, imposing water tanks, high voltage pylons and hanging bridges shape alternative universes, marked by neat lines and neutral, hazy backgrounds.” says Gardone.
“Monumental dresses Foscarini’s lamps in a new light, creating architectures endowed with an intense yet abstract personality. Akin to imposing structures that design new urban spaces, these lamps become unusual interpretations of the concept of metropolis.”
Monumental is on display at the Arsenale bookshop at the Venice Biennale from June 7 to November 23, 2014.
