Talk at Miniclick, Brighton by Lucia Pizzani

On Monday the 27th of March I'll be giving a talk about my photographic work invited by Miniclick, next to Dafna Talmor and Esme Horne.

"Throughout photographic publications, degree shows and exhibitions we are seeing a growing leaning towards the abstract within contemporary photography. Hand in hand with this movement is a growing interest in vintage and analogue techniques, as if practitioners are looking backwards in order to explore new ground with the medium. Dafna Talmor, Lucia Pizzani and Esme Horne all in their own way explore the innovative and experimental techniques that are beginning to shape this field." said the post at the Miniclick website.

Monday 27th April. Doors at 6pm, kicks off at 7pm. Free Entry at The Old Market, Brighton. Free Entry.

Hotshoe Photofusion 2014 Award by Lucia Pizzani

As part of the Photofusion’s Salon/14, Miranda Gavin selected two joint winners for The Hotshoe Photofusion award 2014: Lucia Pizzani for her Impronta series and David Jacksonfor his film titled ‘This is Not My House‘.

"Lucia’s work investigates gender issues, by researching gender and culture throughout history she produces interpretations of such through a mix of performance and photographic craft. Pizzani produced the cocoon-like dresses for her models herself with fabric sourced here in Brixton, the then bandaged women are photographed in static and almost awkward positions, calling upon feelings of claustrophobia and restriction.

These works are part of a series of ferrotypes – a Victorian method of exposing collodion emulsified plates to light. The result of which is an almost surreal and aesthetically tactile photographic image." says the announcement of Photofusion. 

Gavin's words about the work were: 

Lucia Pizzani for her Impronta series 2013 of ink-jet prints derived from the wet-plate collodion process. The work is a hybrid of sculpture, performance and photography and engages with the idea of the chrysalis on a number of levels, including its physical form through the use of specially-made chrysalis costumes. This series of delicate and slightly bizarre black-and-white images recalls the style of 19th-century Victorian ethnographic portraiture and suggests women on the verge of emerging, as well as ideas of metamorphosis and transformation.

The Impronta Series was exhibited both at Sala Mendoza (Caracas) and Beers Contemporary (London), and then at the Pinta Solo Projects curated by Kiki Massucchelli and Catherine Petitgas. It was there that the ESCALA curators encountered the works and decided to incorporate them into their amazing collection.

"We are very pleased to say we have acquired three works by Lucía Pizzani from her Impronta Series.
