> DESCRIPTION

German photographer Candida Höfer will make a noticeable return to London with a major solo show featuring thirteen new monumental works at Ben Brown Fine Arts. Magnificent interiors of palaces, opera houses, libraries, theatres from Northern Italy are the focus of this new series, produced over the past two years, which follows her earlier group of works made in Southern Italy in 2009.  These photographs highlight Northern Italy’s most pivotal architectural spaces in Mantova, Vicenza, Sabbioneta, Venice and Carpi. As in her previous series, these photographs are devoid of human presence, yet the interiors are public spaces created with the intention of holding large numbers of people. Höfer instinctually chooses these locations with respect to their history, architecture and functionality.
