ALL  THINGS  LEFT  BEHIND

Opening: 17th April, h. 18.00 – 20:30

Visits: 18th April – 17th  June, h. 14:00 – 18:30

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present Italian artist Carolina Sandretto for her first solo show in Switzerland. Italian Photographer with a background in both Not for profit Management and Photojournalism, Carolina explores themes such as passing of time, memory and abandonment. In this exhibition photographer Carolina Sandretto, 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.
