Universal Language is the first comprehensive exhibition of sculptural photography work by Matt Colagiuri. Colagiuri’s work presents photographic images mounted on backgrounds of varying heights to weave a narrative that is as complex and revealing as his innovative technique. For this exhibition, the artist explores the subject of love and how it is manifests in many different forms – playful, nostalgic, passionate, even unrequited – to encompass the countless facets of contemporary life.
