Perino and Vele´s work is made up of a myriad of small padded embroided papier maché cushion-like forms which are glued together onto iron and fibreglass structures to give the appearance of gigantic everyday forms, apparently soft and gentle to the touch, but in reality hard.

Sophy Rickett works with darkness, using the simplest photographic means to draw her nocturnal scenes out of the night. In the beginning - in the mid. 90s - she photographed young women as they urinated up against walls and urban parapets like men in a standing position, and friends crouching down on the edge of the road just out of the glare of car headlights. In her subsequent work the presence of humans has almost disappeared and the spaces represented have become "non-spaces": the outskirts of cities, places that have to be crossed on the way to some other destination, viaducts, road junctions and deserted crossroads.

Alberto Peola Gallery presents the first solo exhibition in Italy of the Mexican artist Daniela Rossell.
Ricas y famosas is a series of colour photographic portraits of young women from some of Mexico City's rich and powerful families.
«The rich women in Mexico are prisoners of their houses, their style and their excess» says the artist who, as with her last series, Olympic Tower (a luxurious Fifth Avenue appartment block), portrays her subjects posing in their luxury appartments.
