For VOLTA New York photographers Fabiano Parisi and Isabelle Van Zeijl will present a duo show where they explore the dense layering of history: Unpacking the Beauty of Age.

Born & raised amongst Roman ruins, surrounded by ancient melancholy, Parisi’s photographs portray bygone lifestyles: resorts, villas, theatres. He travels across America & throughout Europe capturing beautiful enigmatic places that we may never see. His photographs, taken at the same time of day, are a commentary on disappearing places of sociability, spaces abandoned, forgotten, replaced by non-lieus: places with no memory.

Van Zeijl’s photographic self-portraits take female beauty ideals from the past & sabotages them in the context of today. Subject to a meticulous process of digital post-production, her portraits can be mistaken at first for subversive paintings by Dutch Golden Age Masters. Her orchids also summon 19 th Century Dutch explorers who studied Asian flora & unleashed the European frenzy for exotic flowers.
