Luigi Ghirri “The Impossible Landscape” at Matthew Marks Gallery
Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Luigi Ghirri: The Impossible Landscape, the next exhibition in his gallery at 526 West 22nd Street. Featuring thirty vintage color photographs made between 1970 and 1989, the exhibition includes landscapes from Italy, where the artist was born and spent most of his life, as well as from Austria and France.
The exhibition takes its title from his 1989 artist’s statement about the way photographs “become our impossible landscape, without scale, without a geographic order to orient us; a tangle of monuments, lights, thoughts, objects, moments, analogies from our landscape of the mind, which we seek out, even unconsciously, every time we look out a window, into the openness of the outside world, as if they were the points of an imaginary compass that indicates a possible direction.”
