CAMERA WORK presents “Christian Tagliavini: The Photographic Craftsman” , the exhibition shows a selection of more than 40 works by Christian Tagliavini. The works on display trace the artist’s work from his first series “Dame di Cartone” through “1503”, “Carte” and “Voyages Extraordinaires” to “1406” and the latest series “Circesque”. Works from the »Circesque« cycle will be presented that have never been shown before.
The exhibition shows which special skills the artist uses to create his works. From the first design studies to the construction of entire rooms, Christian Tagliavini creates and produces almost all parts of his work himself. The exhibition shows how the artist has learned new skills over the years in order to be able to realize his works. Numerous original exhibits from the photographic works – including sketches, hats and dresses – can also be seen in the exhibition.
The new photo book »Circesque« by Christian Tagliavini (teNeues) will be published to accompany the exhibition.
Christian Tagliavini has been represented worldwide exclusively by the CAMERA WORK gallery since 2013.
Christian Tagliavini was born in Switzerland in 1971. His work is particularly influenced by his childhood in Parma, where he grew up surrounded by the cultural richness of the Po Valley. A self-taught photographer, Tagliavini originally studied architecture and worked as a graphic designer. His interest in photography was awakened at a photography exhibition in Milan in 2000. Fascinated by the technical aspects of photography, he first tried different photographic disciplines, before discovering that the staging technique is the most effective way to realize those stories that live in his imagination. Christian Tagliavini’s works are represented in prestigious private and public collections and are exhibited in numerous museums worldwide.
