Product description

Andrea Botto's Ka-Boom: the Explosion of Landscape (Signed With Print-2017 Limited Edition 1/500-Fine)
Hardcover, Used - Fine/Like New. As new. First Edition, First Printing, 2017. Hardcover in pictorial boards. First Edition, First Printing. Limited Edition of only 500 copies issued with a signed and numbered print adhered to one of the last pages, ours being number 52. 

120 pages with numerous colour photographic images throughout. Texts by Lars Willumeit, Marco Navarra, Marta Daho, Andrea Botto.  Signed on the Title Page "To David", dated 04/12/2018.

Andrea Botto (Rapallo, 1973), is an Italian fine-art photographer and lecturer, graduated in 1997 at Istituto Europeo di Design, Turin. Interested in the cross-pollination of various contemporary art mediums, he uses photography as a means of dissecting the world in order to express its complexity and to expose its stratifications. Time, collective imaginary, as well as the current transformations that mark the present age, are the key themes of his work, which explores the unstable equilibrium that governs the landscape, through the aesthetics of destruction. 

His projects have been acknowledged by grants and awards and have been exhibited in international museums, including Bundeskusthalle in Bonn (2005), Fotomuseum Winterthur (2005), Stiftung Kultur in Cologne (2006), MAXXI in Rome (2007-2016), Fundacion Canal Isabel II in Madrid (2007), MoCA in Shanghai (2010), Villa Croce in Genoa and Benaki Museum in Athens (2015). His works are to be found in private and public collections. He carries out and manages editorial and corporate projects, specialising in decommissioning and major works. He cooperates with public authorities and research groups within multidisciplinary projects for the study of landscape, with particular attention to geology, environment and memory of historical events. Along with the professional activity, Botto usually gives lectures and educational workshops and he is in charge of several cultural events. 

The artist says of himself "It is said that the artist is like a seismograph, as he is the first to detect the slightest tremor or change to take place in front of his eyes.
