Luigi Ghirri. The Map and the Territory

Authors James Lingwood, Maria Antonella Pelizzari, Japoco Benci

The Map and the Territory is the first major Luigi Ghirri retrospective to go on show outside the artist’s native Italy.This exhibition is structured around two key notions: “territory” and “map”, ideas which reflect the world and the way it is represented. The selection of works here reprises the poetic cartography of the 1979 show, which, across fourteen series divided into themes, surveyed a compendium of the places Ghirri travelled through: houses in the suburbs; the landscape of signs in the provincial Italy of that era; the relationship between artificiality and nature in the gardens of Modena, and so on.
