Anne Tallentire - Dimora


On the edge of the outer industrial zone of Reggio Emilia, Italy, an abandoned building appears to contain nothing more than a random scattering of items; beds, armchairs, cookers, tiles, broken doors, clothes etc. On closer inspection, it seems the space has been subtly transformed by ‘migrant workers' as a place to live, with distinct areas for play and communal life. Dimora, meaning dwelling or residence, the title of Tallentire's powerful yet understated photographic series, looks at how objects in this space are carefully arranged to create a functioning social arena, workspace or decoy. Tallentire's recent work has focused on spaces and activities associated with apparently mundane yet essential aspects of day-to-day living that often remain out of sight. The Dimora series, part of a three part work Arena Industriale, initially commissioned for Storie Urbane in Reggio Emilia, illustrates Tallentire's interest in transient experience and displacement in relation to specific social, geographic and political contexts. Born in Ireland, Anne Tallentire lives and works in London and is Professor of Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
