Curated by Elena Carotti, Gigliola Foschi

with Alessandro Vicario

In the Secrecy of a Home (2024) concludes the Domestic Fragments trilogy (2004-2024) and brings Alessandro Vicario face to face with places unknown to him. It was a collector who suggested that he photograph a villa that belonged to some of her relatives. As the author himself tells us, "after the first hours of disorientation, I began to get in tune with the environment. The signs and traces of those distant lives became somehow familiar to me. I understood their universal dimension". The exhibition, curated by Elena Carotti and presented by Lab 1930. Fotografia contemporanea presents a selection of 7 photographs at a scale of 1:1, while the complete project of 18 photographs will be published by ELR Edizioni Le Ricerche in Locarno (Switzerland), with a critical text by Gigliola Foschi (May 2024).
