Il Giardino di Olindo | Author: Olindo Polo
Back in stock soon.
“Part word, part picture, Il Giardino di Olindo conjures the narrative of a neglected genre: aesthetic impulses bring the strategies of literature, lyricism, poetry, and incisive description into the medium of photography, or better, onto the flat glass of a photocopying machine. A fig leaf, shrivelled cucumbers, the broad blade of a hand tool, washers and hose connectors – through light, heat, chemicals and electrostatic charges, we are offered a glimpse of a gardener’s life: the plants, weeds, bugs, birds, and soil, that imbricate life in a series of daily routines and struggles. A pensive and beautiful homage to a form of horticultural quietism in precarious times.” — Emilia Terracciano, author of Art and Emergency: Modernism in Twentieth Century India
“Memories, associations, and knowledge from earth covered hands grow like sprouts and roots, connecting and burrowing deep. Il Giardino di Olindo offers a glimpse into a long and changing aliveness.” — Thalia Alington-Wood, The Warburg Institute, London
