Vincent Gallo
November 19th 1999 – January 10th 2000


V. Gallo, Buffalo ‘66, 1998

It is the first solo exhibition as photographer of the artist-actor-filmmaker Vincent Gallo. The exhibition gathers five large color photographs extracted directly from the movie Buffalo 66, where the artist is also protagonist and director. Cold and severe images, characterized by a harmonious composition, maintain constantly a spontaneous voyeuristic sensation. The human figure is used by the artist as analogy and poetic exploration of the multiple sides of affliction, especially the revenge and the research of a human contact. In these series of shots, for the first time in the Gallo work, the human beings substitute objects, keeping always an explosive sensation of loneliness. Still remains the obsession for aesthetics, the contrast and the composition.
