Starting on Thursday, February 15th, Turin based Burning Giraffe Art Gallery hosts the exhibition "Lines and Fragments. Photography, Spirit and Immanence", a solo show by young Italian photographer Samuele Mollo (Turin, 1986). The exhibition is made in partnership with Celeste International Art Prize. Burning Giraffe was one of the galleries chose by the organization of the Prize to host the exhibition of one of the participating artists. The choice fell on Samuele Mollo, for his peculiar “slow” approach to photography and for a kind of research that, thanks to an extreme compositional rigor, has been able to cross the line between photography and painting. Through a selection of twelve artworks, some of which are unique, the artist transforms the immediacy of street photography reportage into a cultured and refined array of abstract reproductions, that, depending on the subject, draw chromatic patterns which remind of Mondrian and the De Stijl movement, with their geometrical details of naked rough walls and rusty gutters lightened up by intense sunlight, with the subsequent chiaroscuro play; or they search for the marked ruined detail of the wall to give it the powerful minimalistic strength of the informal and materic existential painting of early Twentieth Century.
