Show Map

Project Space

School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, University Road, University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT

The Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (CAVE) presents the latest in this year's programme of exhibitions in our Project Space.

For her first solo exhibition in Leeds, practice-led PhD candidate Eva Frapiccini will propose a series of photographic installations addressing the relationship between the visual and haptic dimension of photography.

Frapiccini's work is often represented by archival long-term projects on social and political changes, taking the form of interactive installations where visitors are physically engaged.

The exhibition will host three projects realised after research fieldwork and residency programmes in Cairo (2012), Sicily and central Italy (2018).

Originally commissioned for the solo show taking place at the Municipal Archive of Palermo during Manifesta 2018, it was the winner of the Italian Council Award by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism. This work is accompanied by a monographic publication designed by the artist.

The Art of Memory is supported by the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute (LAHRI) and the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies.

Join us for a private view on Wednesday 4 September, 6-8pm

Artist biography

Eva Frapiccini is a PhD candidate at the School of Fine Art, History of Art & Cultural Studies, University of Leeds. Her works revolve largely around language and its invisible ways of expression. Directly informed by historic events and their material significance, her subject matter deals with sociopolitical circumstances where power relations are unbalanced.

Her projects have been shown in a series of international institutions such as the BOZAR Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels; La Maison de la Photographie, Paris; Kim? Contemporary Art Center, Riga; Arkitekturmuseet, Stockholm; Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield; and festivals such as the XII International Exhibition of Architecture in Venice. Frapiccini’s works are included in a number of institutional collections in Italy, such as the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation and the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art.
