Tempo Polveroso by Frederik Vercruysse


Graanmarkt 13 and photography agency Initials LA launched a new exhibition by Belgian photographer Frederik Vercruysse. ‘Tempo Polveroso’ shows a series of 16 unique still lifes that came to life during an ‘artist in residency’ project in Villa Lena, Tuscany.

About the exhibition

Although the project which Vercruysse initially had in mind when embarking on his residency at Villa Lena was a new series of still lifes, he soon felt compelled to capture his inspirational surroundings in images rather than remain within the four walls of his studio. 

His photographs of marble quarries evoke a sense of beauty, while concurrently imbued with a melancholy sprit; the creation of beauty at the expense of nature. Without the inclusion of any human figures, it is impossible to fathom the larger-than-life scale of this totally unique form of landscape architecture. This has produced some abstract and picturesque images.

The artist’s work - five editions per work of art - and an exhibition booklet with a limited edition of 100 copies will be sold during the exhibition.
