Baxter St at CCNY is pleased to announce 2016 Workspace Resident Marco Scozzaro’s solo show Digital Deli.

About

In his exhibition, Scozzaro employs a photographic fiction-making process as obliquely autobiographical, fabricating, inventing, and constructing images that straddle both criticism and confession. Subverting a tantalizing advertising style of rich colors and textures with staged images that disorient, Scozzaro questions the representability of certain ideas that recur in mass media. Not merely a criticism of oversimplification in visual culture today, his images are also documents of a purposely mis-directed self-representation. In some of Scozzaro’s work there is a clear tension between the naturally mechanical aspect of photography where the camera plagiarizes nature versus the corruption of that verisimilitude with a variety of techniques. The corruptions and contradictions appear as variations of the very notions they reference in a kind of object-oriented ontology that ultimately revokes a hierarchy of signification.
