Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present “Koža”, our first solo exhibition of work by emerging Canadian artist Deanna Pizzitelli.
Pizzitelli is a Canadian photo-based artist and writer. Using a variety of analogue technologies, she is interested in the contemporary expression of historical processes. Pizzitelli explores the emotional landscape as it refers to desire, eroticism, longing, and loss. Her intimately scaled photographs consider a wide range of disparate subject matter, woven together in a visual narrative, and appearing like the remains of an important photographic archive depicting a long-lost time and place.
Pizzitelli’s recent series “Koža”, the Slovak word for skin, was photographed during her travels over the last three years. Pizzitelli spent a year living in Slovakia, then visited various places within Europe, across Canada, and then parts of Latin America. By exploring the varying landscapes and the people within them, she documented the unfolding narrative of her own experiences. Each image represents a glimpse into a fragmented history, disjointed and retold into a new story of companionship and isolation, a search for meaning and connection amidst a backdrop of stark and lonely scenes.
