Sensitive Documentation of Architecture and Landscapes
While still relatively undiscovered within Germany, Margherita Spiluttini (born 1947) ranks among the most renowned architectural photographers in Europe. In her native Austria, her name is synonymous with sensitive architectural and landscape photography.
At the centre of her work is the question of how architecture can transform and define a physical space. "I am drawn to the principle of metamorphosis," Spiluttini explained during an interview with Austrian culture magazine FALTER in 2014. "What particularly fascinates me is the point when the Old has gone, and the New is not yet in place."
Archive of Spaces
Spiluttini selected series and compilations from her archive that most appropriately reflect both her chosen media – photography and architecture. The exhibition is accompanied by the book Margherita Spiluttini. Archiv der Räume, published as a Fotohof Edition by the Landesgalerie Linz Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum and the Photography Collection of the SK Foundation.
