Diego Bruno has invited Taru Elfving to discuss the themes of the exhibition “Location” at Photographic Gallery Hippolyte.
Discussion in English. Welcome!

In Diego Bruno’s work, questions of site, politics of space, and language are explored through video, written text, drawing, photography and exhibition as a technique. The works attempt to emphasize the friction between aesthetic and political awareness in the framework of their respective narratives.
