DAVID LYNCH: The Factory Photographs at MAST gallery

MAST presents the Italian debut of the The Factory Photographs by David Lynch. These black-and-white photographs exude Lynch‘s fascination with factories, his obsession with smokestacks, chimneys, machinery, darkness and mystery. For more than 30 years now, David Lynch has been photographing derelict monuments of industrialization: brick structures with arches, cornices, domes, and towers, with portals and high windows, resemble cathedrals.

These are remnants of a lost world, when factories were proud milestones of progress, today deserted wastelands, scenarios for stories loaded with the emotional aura so characteristic of Lynch. The photographs were shot between 1980 and 2000, depicting factories in and around Berlin and in Poland, England, New York City, New Jersey and Los Angeles.

It is as if the soot, or the vapors and fine dust of the place have deposited themselves onto their surface: they look like charcoal drawings, haptic, the graphic lines in inky black and shades of gray. In a captivating way, the photographs reveal the unmistakeable hand of Lynch: magical, surreal imagery resemble dreamlike sequences in subjects, moods, and nuances of colour. They evoke the labyrinthine, brooding and enigmatic quality of his films.
