This publication accompanies Luisa Lambri's exhibition Linee. Lines. (29 May - 2 October 2021). In Linee. Lines., her first exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery in Naples, the Milan-based artist has chosen to focus her camera on how lines create both lived and abstract space in a new body of photographic work. The works consider two particular historical moments in and around Naples: the frescos inside the architectural structures of the nearby first century A.D. ruins of Pompeii, and the legendary Italian designer Gio Ponti's built elements for the interiors of the Royal Continental Hotel in Naples and the Parco dei Principi in Sorrento. Produced specifically for the elegant 19th century rooms of Thomas Dane Gallery, these works are shown alongside Lambri's new photographic investigations of the line in the work of the Polish conceptual artist Edward Krasinski (1925-2004), and the California Light and Space artist Doug Wheeler.
The publication features an essay by Douglas Fogle and Hanneke Skerath.
