JACOB GILS

MOVEMENTS

ProjectB is pleased to present the first exhibition at the gallery of the Danish photographer Jacob Gils. The show includes seven works of impeccable technical and compositional expertise.

SHOW AND TRACES

In April ProjectB will present the first solo show by the young Italian artist Tindar. 

The “Radici” (Roots) start with the artist’s reflections on culture, our identity as living beings, as humans, as westerners. To aptly express this concept, Tindar uses tree roots as a symbol, drawing them on the pages of historic texts that form the basis of our civilization, like religious scriptures or the Divine Comedy.
The relationship between nature and truth is equally important for this series of works. “Concrete, silent and powerful substance: this is the teaching nature grants me and before which I bow my head.”
