Pino Musi: ACRE

Pino Musi: ACRE

Starting from the project "Settlements" by London based photographer David Spero (which has just been released as a book) and from his picture of the milking machine in Maremma, Italy, Marco Delogu curates a show based on the work by Italian photographer Pino Musi, ACRE.

At its first time in the UK, ACRE opens on the occasion of Photo London at the Italian Cultural Institute Tuesday 16 May 2017 and continues until Wednesday 28 June 2017.

The exhibition is an investigation about the agricultural landscape in the recent days, an ideal journey thorough European contemporary backcountry, that part of the land that is far from the conventional tourist image.
From centre-Italy backcountry to Brittany, the idea of the exhibition ideally traces a journey through the story of the permutation of the countryside, a scenario of failed recovery, exploitation, and massive urban development.

In French (but also in English and Italian) "acre" is the unit of an area of land, but âcre is also a French word that stands for the bitter character of Brittany’s backcountry as it has become in recent years. A much less known territory, where the illusory lushness of nature and beauty of the landscape hides an inconsiderate employment of pesticides in the countryside and a massive presence of intensive livestock farming.

Musi’s work focuses on the relationship between the minimal architecture and the morphology of the Côtes-d’Armor area. Realized in Britanny, Acre is the result of an artist residence at the GwinZegal art and research center in Guingamp.
