Ticino-born Luciano Rigolini produces photographs portraying neutral images of objects or urban furniture - all with every trace of human beings completely erased. The works are on show now.
Whether collected by himself or found on the internet, whether presented as originals or thoroughly retouched and greatly enlarged, Rigolini’s photographs invite us to examine the way we see and perceive images. Surrogates, part of his Concept Car exhibition, is being shown simultaneously at the Swiss cultural centre in Paris and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne.
