Leo Fabrizio - Dreamworld
Artist's book: a photographic study about how we build dream through architecture.
The photographic project of Swiss artist Leo Fabrizio consists of observing the spatial consequences of the rapid transformation of cities under the influence of globalization. The post-global city sees its function as awakening desires, preferring to sell dreams rather than solve problems. In the photographic sequence entitled "Dreamworld" (made in the suburb area of Bangkok), Fabrizio depicts the clash between dream images and the reality on the ground.
Fabrizio asks: Is everything that is built—architecture—nothing more than a material representation of our dreams? But if all these representations are no more than cardboard scenery, hollow but eye-catching, where does this leave our dreams?
Born 1976 in Moudon (Switzerland), Leo Fabrizio lives and works between Lausanne and Bangkok.
