Galerie Fabian Lang presents Isabelle Young: Stills, the British artist’s first solo exhibition in London.
This new photographic series by Young - a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art - unites her keen eye for architectural details with the cinematic world at a temporary exhibition space in London’s Soho. Primarily focusing on Italian architecture, the works are rooted in neorealist cinema.
Following the first and second world wars, Italian film directors such as Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini famously cast from the street as every face had a story to tell. Young casts buildings who hold such stories: there are no people or characters present but a sense that they have only just departed. Unlike a set, these locations were not built to fit an audience’s perspective yet retain a sense of ambiguity.
