"Lost and Found"
29 June – 28 July 2018
A small, black-and-white photograph found, by chance, in the street, with the inscription “my grandfather” scribbled on the back, served as a starting point for this second solo exhibition by Pedrita Studio at Underdogs Gallery, replete with mnemonic fortuities and poetic instants. Intentionally intersecting the analogue world and the digital world, the legacy of the past and the reality of the present, the series of panels showcased here resorts to their original composition technique based on the use of discontinued industrial tiles following the principle of the pixel or photographic grain.
Inspired by a set of lost (and found) images that capture mundane episodes and various expressions which are certainly familiar to us – from the drollest spontaneity to the most staged of poses –, this meticulous body of work suggests an exercise in contemplation on the ideas of loss and recovery – of our individual memories, of our collective referents, of our cultural and identitarian heritage.
