Lorenzo Vitturi’s work is often found at the intersection of sculpture and photography and his latest project, Dalston Anatomy, saw him spend time in London’s Ridley Road Market taking pictures, making sculptures and creating collages with materials and objects he found amongst the debris of the marketplace.  Vitturi’s process is largely concerned with the creation, consumption and preservation of images and studies the cyclical pattern of formation, disappearance and re-emergence.  The makeshift sculptures he created mimic the organic and temporary nature of the market, and their documentation is the way in which they endure before diminishing once more.   The book is a beautiful object that distils the very spirit of the fair –bound in exquisite Vlisco fabrics in bright patterns that are reminiscent of African markets and accompanied by a poem by Dalston-based poet, that layers voices from the market to draw on its disjointed and surreal atmosphere.
