Nikolas Ventourakis, Untitled 01, 2013, C-type print, 121.9 × 101.6 cm,edition of 5.

Matèria and D.O.O.R present the first edition of Latent. The exhibition shows a perspective on contemporary photography in which pressing global and domestic issues are approached. The artists research these issues through experimenting with modes of representation and reframing of the medium of photography and its history.


Nikolas Ventourakis is featured in Latent at Matèria gallery in Rome. He will be presenting his 'Systematic Portraits' series in which the facial features of scanned passport photos are distorted to the point that an abstract digital patchwork of a portrait remains, while the security holograms and text are revealed.


The artists participating in the exhibition are selected from the Latent open call in order to converse with each other along with the space of Matèria gallery.


Participating artists: Øystein Dahlstrøm, Lore Horré, Sophie Tianxin Chen, Sherwin Rivera Tibayan and Nikolas Ventourakis.


The exhibition opens on Tuesday, 20 September and will run until 20 October 2016.
