The Cenacolo Di Ognissanti in Florence, Italy is the location of Domenico Ghirlandaio’s Last Supper, one of the earliest examples of “perspectival art” –
a practice codified in Florence in the 15th Century.
Adi Da’s intention with his images is to “transcend point of view” all together. This creates a powerful dialog between Ghirlandaio’s Last Supper and Adi Da’s fifteen-meter long Alberti’s Window I, from the Geome One suite – a work Adi Da created in response to Leon Baptiste Alberti’s “Alberti’s Window”, an original diagram from the 15th century codifying perspective in artistic works.
Adi Da’s exhibition “Transcendental Realism” also includes three additional large-scale fabrications, from his Spectra Ten, Geome Four, and Oculus One suites. The exhibition runs from February – July 2008.
