For Spotlight, Zero presents Photo-Graffie by Vincenzo Agnetti. Agnetti made the Photo-Graffie towards the end of his career from1979–81. They were made by scratching onto light-exposed photographic paper to reveal a figurative element underneath. Through this procedure, Agnetti creates a poetic image that anticipates and replaces external reality. The works show Agnetti reflecting on the relationship between the mean and the message, between the tool, the compositional technique and the perspective.
