With this new series entitled Harmony of chaos, Renato D’Agostin, questioning the human condition, carries us along a deep and dense atmosphere. These compelling photographs flirting with abstraction undoubtedly make up his most accomplished body of works to date.

Renowned for his unique style, exhibited throughout the world, featured in prestigious private and public collections and subject of numerous successful publications, Renato D'Agostin's work has held over the years a very special place in the world of photography. With his new series, Harmony of Chaos, the artist sets the bar even higher, uncovering new grounds.  

In Harmony of Chaos, Renato D'Agostin depicts the vibration and claustrophobia he felt in the streets of Shanghai. Far from drawing a simple portrait of the city, he makes from this sensorial experience a series that highlights the DNA of post-modern cities at large. The photographs emphasize on the anonymity generated by urban structures in a mastered vocabulary that endlessly plays with scales. The series gives us a sense of the fast-paced changes that occurred in these cities and questions the place of Man in these new megalopolis.

Theo-Mario Coppola, who wrote the foreword of the special book accompanying the exhibition, perfectly describes the atmosphere of the series: "Cement abstractions, blown by wind, drowned by fog, the dense, moving façades stand out, without foundation, without sky, like huge painted backdrops of a theater set. The actors — passersby — come and go in this fluid mass where people move in order to live. Their appearance is furtive. Their actions are comprised of simple gestures, reduced to the choreography of silence and to the harmony of chaos”.
