Conceptual artist and photographer Joan Fontcuberta presents ‘Cultura di Polvere’ (Culture of Dust), an enigmatic collection poetically situated along the scale from microcosm to macrocosm and back again. Born from his residency at the Central Institute for Cataloguing and Documentation (ICCD) in Rome, which holds one of the most sizeable collections of historical images in Italy, the project allowed him to engage with the historical collections and produce a surreal work that raises questions about the immortality of photography. With texts by project curator Francesca Fabiani and critic and curator David Campany, plus an explanation of the material written by the artist himself.
