Ruins / Souvenir
8-30 November 2003

During November Transition is showing a project by the artist/curator Hugo Worthy which manifests as a collection of prints by the Italian grand master Piranesi. Alongside this is a collection of contemporary photographs inspired by the notion that the Pirenasi prints were originally bought as souvenirs of the Grand Tour. The juxtapositon of these two projects questions ideas about the position of the artist, the collector and the curator in the contemporary art world.
