Dalston Anatomy is a book project, a multi-layered installation, and a visual celebration of the Ridley Road Market in East London. Vitturi recognised the market as a unique place where ‘different cultures merge together in a celebration of life, diversity and unstoppable energy’ and was inspired to capture this place before it transformed beyond recognition.

Residing in the area for over seven years, Vitturi visited the market daily and witnessed the local community, economy and the very nature of the market changing around him with striking acceleration. From this complicated process of transformation stems Vitturi’s compulsion to collect and picture the objects found at the market.

The objects were left to rot, manipulated with pigment or deconstructed and then rearranged in compositions and photographed against discarded market materials before and after their collapse. The ephemeral nature of these sculptures mirrors the impermanent nature of the market itself, while the reconstruction and placement of these totem-objects in the exhibition space reflects on constant cycles of production, destruction and recreation.
