Dialectical Landscape - Thinking Central Park
Architecture | Galerie Richard, New York, United-States | Wednesday 5 July 2017 - Sunday 27 August 2017
Skyscrapers and Central Park co-exist dialectically. "Central Park is essentially a void. A 13.123 x 2.625 feet void. It was conceived on the basis of an idea of spatiality where density was to be developed, but it is the density of the buildings of Manhattan, in their hyper-growth expansion, that has traced out that recreational rectangle for the dispersion of Homo faber. That is, the park is a void because it works as a courtyard inside the urban detention". In Thinking Central Park the artist fills the space with constructions considered as shelters. At the opposite in Dialectical Landscape he adds some empty spaces for recreational or mobility purposes.

No American road trip looms larger in our collective consciousness than the one bound west, and has been both the favorite subject and a formidable challenge for most artists, from Robert Frank to Jack Kerouac. In 2015, Italian-born photographer Renato D’Agostin took the challenge and travelled the 7,439 miles from New York to Los Angeles on his 1983 BMW motorcycle, developing film in hotel sinks along the way. This initiatic journey gave rise to a series of bright and contrasted images, overwhelming with beauty, subtlety and grace, entitled "7439".
