Take a few steps past the entrance of a small hotel in Prati Fiscali, an area in the outskirts of Rome, and you will enter a parallel world, in a time far from ours. With its seventies style, the Hotel York, as it is called, could just be the set of the place the Eagels were singing about in Hotel California, back in 1977.
Tomorrow, october 1st this unique and undiscovered location will be transformed in order to host Inventario, a special project conceived by photographer Alessandro Cicoria, who created the artist book York Hotel in these same premises, in 2009.
For one day only, a number of Roman and international artists, coming from different backgrounds and working with all kinds of media, were invited to show their photographic work. The 40 selected pieces, will be on display from 2pm onwards, only to be auctioned off the same day, at 7pm (in collaboration with Minerva Auctions).
“In the congress hall of the hotel, I would like to recreate the atmosphere of the auction room, a photographic inventory exposed on the walls, a dialogue in pictures; An inquiry about documentary photography, appropriation and photography as a work of art” says Alessandro Cicoria, who contributed to the exhibition by creating a very personal catalogue of the works (edition of 100).
