NOTOOLS_FORK1 EXHIBITION

photographic exhibition by Davide Dutto

From 27th to 31st October 2021
Palazzo Carignano
Spazio Espositivo, 2nd floor

The NoTools project looks for tales of people and food in the folds of used tools. It is organized in chapters, from silverware to cooking utensils which are often and unconsciously used almost as physical extensions. Each cooking tool can tell a whole world and is witness to a unique and original historical period. People are accompanied by these tools for most of  their lives.

It is divided into three main chapters: Fork1, Spoon2 and Knife3, to tell tales of people and food, short circuits between dish and mouth.

NoTools_Fork1 is the first project I have ever tackled with a conceptual approach in my temporary role as photographer of food, kitchens and chefs. For once, food and people stay out of the frame. In the rectangular photographic space we see the tools used to eat – those tools, with hands, unite people and food. The photographic exhibition  includes 40 fine-art 70×100 printouts where the protagonists are forks and their historic, technical, poetic, narrative, aesthetic itineraries  laid down on a white limbo, i.e. decontextualized, so we can read the stories behind their every crack.

Free admission
