The first major solo show in the UK of
Italian contemporary artist, Marco

Featuring over 150 works in an allegorical journey developed over four storeys of Cardi Gallery London’s space, this museum-scale retrospective includes drawings, paintings, photographs, and small sculptures, many of which produced for the exhibition.

His works populate a complex visual archive, one that the artist has been systematically building over time since his early childhood. They activate mental realms of cultural recollection, collective memory, and conventional conceptions of value representation through the webs of associations and connotations they are capable of unleashing.

Tirelli’s subjects are not objects per se, but their representation.
Reminiscent of Plato’s allegory of the cave, they question our ability as humans to experience and know the real world. Contained by surrounding space - a space viewed as the universal potential of the connections between objects, as described by Marleau Ponty - with its overall sense and perceived depth, these things-objects are existential. They force the viewer to question the perception of reality in a way that allows to unmask and unleash the symbolic potential of the depicted object.
