Reminiscent of oil paintings by an old master

Share:

Starting on December 9, 2017, Camera Work in Berlin is happy to present 1406, an exhibition by Christian Tagliavini. The never-exhibited-before images belonging to Tagliavini’s new series, 1406, will be on display for the first time until February 24, 2018. The second part of the exhibition will include some of the main pieces from the artist’s other series.

Tagliavini has been working on the 1406 series for over 36 months, combining 15th century Italian art with contemporary artistic photography. During this extended working process he produced poignant portraits imbued with the dignity, grace, charm and strength characteristic of the early Renaissance. The title of the series is a reference to the Italian painter Filippo Lippi (1406–1469), who is considered one of the most important artists of the early Renaissance.

The images are more than just pictures: they are designed narrations for which Tagliavini himself fashioned all the visible content in a complex and detailed manner – from the interior of the picture setting to the clothing of those portrayed. With this in mind, he used materials that apply historically to each time-frame. Considering this unique approach to his work, he refers to himself as a photographic craftsman.
