Preparing our upcoming exhibition at the House of Photography: PAOLO PELLEGRIN – UN'ANTOLOGIA is the result of two years of intense work on the Italian photographer’s archives. Together with the artist, a special exhibition architecture was designed for the Deichtorhallen Hamburg to present @paolopellegrin's complex artistic vision.
The exhibition narrative unfolds between two polar opposites, light and dark, metaphors for the most extreme manifestations of existence encountered by Pellegrin over the years.
Opening on Thurday, 31 October 2019 at 11.30 a.m. Paolo Pellegrin will be present. –––––––––– ⠀
