Curvilinear - a photographic project by rajmohan
“Architecture aims at Eternity.” - Christopher Wren
The course of history has seen the emergence, subsequent pre-eminence and eventual
disappearance of things ranging in scale from stars to animal species to microscopic organisms.
In this cosmic timeline, the achievements of human beings are no more than minute blips. Even great accomplishments in human history which were considered during their time to be eternal, such as the Roman Empire or the Ancient Wonders of the World, came to an end.
I am struck by the magnificence of modern architecture, much as I imagine our ancestors might have marveled at their contemporary wonders like the Lighthouse at Alexandria or the Colossus of Rhodes.
This exhibition is a hymn to the anatomy and aesthetics of some of these buildings and the beautiful symphony of line and form they embody, both alone and in relationship to their neighbours. However like all things, these structures, despite the feats of design and engineering and their promise of longevity, will cease to exist at some point in the future. These images represent a record of their existence and their beauty, and an acknowledgement of the finite nature of their being.
Curated by Anya Cacciapuoti & Alessandro Cartosio
The exhibition will be open to the public during Rome Art Week (RAW)
from 21 to 26 October, between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
A reception will be held on 26 October at 7 p.m.;
the artist, rajmohan, will be present.
