Dawit L. Petros, Gaps, holes, fissures, and frictions

By Claudia Polledri

With references to Italian history and reflections on migratory realities, Dawit L. Petros’s images span different temporalities and a variety of geographic spaces. In the space-time journey offered in the exhibition Gaps, holes, fissures, and frictions, viewers navigated from the nineteenth century and the colonization of Eritrea to today’s Montreal, where Petros spends some of his time, via the fascist period in Italy. Claudia Polledri calls the exhibition “striking,” and notes that Petros’s “formal simplicity encompasses great aesthetic richness.” In her view, Petros creatively exploits archives and reveals the “holes in representations” of the Italian presence in Africa, a “history, long on the fringes of contemporary historiography.”
