Lorenzo Vitturi – ‘Dalston Anatomy’

Ridley Road is a peculiar place. By day, an overpowering sensory experience – meat hanging in the air (literally and olfactory), African traders and hair salons. By evening, animal blood being hosed down drains and by night, quiet except for the market bar’s bustle and an impatient queue. Lorenzo Vitturi found himself at this intersection of culture, making sculptures and creating collages with materials and objects he found amongst the debris of the marketplace. The makeshift sculptures he created mimic the organic and temporary nature of the market, and their documentation is the way in which they endure after diminishing. You can find Dalston Anatomy here.
