Enrico Bedolo, Life in file
The artistic explorations of Enrico Bedolo investigate the various aspects of the contemporary landscape through the use of analogue and digital techniques, experimenting at the same time with the photographic language itself.
The artist has photographed parts of the simulations we find displayed outside building sites that show what the work being done will look like on completion. Besides the issue of spaces, the subtle game of backward-moving time becomes immediately apparent: the photograph, as everyone knows, captures the moment which instantly becomes part of the past, but in this case it appears as the image of a promise for the future. Yet it is nothing but deception, a trompe-le-temps, we might say: the image shown claims to anticipate the future, but the photo of that image actually projects it into the past in relation to the shot, regardless.
“The shadow is projected into the very corner where reality is consummated […] It is not a question of detail, performance, duration or simply that everything is only a few minutes away from where we have got to. It is that boundaries are transparent lines and to some extent can be infinitely rewritten, assuming that there are some.”
Enrico Bedolo’s works exhibited here are part of the group exhibition No Man Nature.
