A Fresh Look at the Everyday

by Danilo Brunetti

A new exhibition at glorious Villa Medici brings together the works of British photographer Martin Parr and the two creators of Toiletpaper magazine, Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, for a hypnotic look at a visual repertoire overflowing with colors. The exhibition is made up of an installation of over 40 photographs occupying a section of the villa’s lush Renaissance gardens, juxtaposing the most iconic images of these three prolific artists. The human body, food, and animals are recurring motifs of this photographic project that questions our contemporary obsession with images. The meticulously composed works capture scenes from everyday life that create a photographic narrative in which the vernacular and surrealist fiction merge. villamedici.it
