Idea Code 18430

‘CAVA’ is published to coincide with an eponymous exhibition in Seravezza, Italy, to which Hans Bol contributed his photographs of quarries in the region. After first visiting and becoming fascinated by the marble mines in 1986, Bol has since returned to the area regularly, observing how the landscape, despite being laid open, mutilated, and torn, can been seen as a sort of dynamic work of art, constantly moving and changing. Even so, his pictures acknowledge the irreversible damage that this process causes to nature, and the contradiction has motivated him to also seek out abandoned quarries in which nature is making a vain attempt to mask this evidence of violence.
