The first major solo show in the UK of Italian contemporary artist, Marco Tirelli (b.1956, Rome). Featuring over 150 works in an allegorical journey developed over four storeys of Cardi Gallery London’s space, this exceptional museum-scale retrospective includes drawings, paintings, photographs, and small sculptures, many of which have been produced for the exhibition.

A member of the New Roman School in the 1980s and 1990s, Tirelli was trained in set design. The artist's background paired with the visual complexity of the layered histories surrounding him in his hometowns of Rome and Spoleto have deeply informed his highly personal and allegorical vocabulary of memories. 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.

"To activate echoes in the viewers, by immersing them in an interplay of images, symbols, and allegories, in a game of references and reflections", as the artists himself states, he incorporates display strategies borrowed from the late Renaissance, such as the Studiolo - a room filled with interesting things, meant as a nobleman's locus of contemplation - to construct marvellous immersive installations inhabited by grids of drawings and bronze sculptures that function as spatial and visual streams of consciousness.
