ALL  THINGS  LEFT  BEHIND

Visits: 22 June – 31 August, all day
Vicolo Lavatoi 10, Pietrasanta (LU) – Italy

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to invite you to its temporary pop up in Pietrasanta (LU), Italy.
After the successful exhibition in Lugano, [dip] presents the traveling exhibition ALL THINGS LEFT BEHIND by Carolina Sandretto in a magnificent 17’s century building. The photographer Carolina Sandretto once again takes the viewer to Cuba, Svalbard and Antarctica to explore the idea of time and it’s passing and what it signifies for the landscape of things that belong to us. Time and its passing influence objects in a visible way. Their superficies and external aspect change as well as the significance and importance of these things hold for us. They become part of a lost landscape, traces of who we were a testimony of our past life, memory of what we were by what we left behind. Our collective past reflects on the surface of the landscapes depicted, even in places where these things are still in use.
With a background in both Not for profit Management and Photojournalism, Carolina Sandretto explores themes such as passing of time, memory and abandonment.
