Damien Cifelli presents 'Tarogramma Archive' – a collection of artefacts and images that reveal the history of this hidden land. Shrouded from the eyes of the world, the hidden civilisation of Tarogramma has long existed in parallel with our own. All that is known about the place exists in the objects recovered from the wrecks of fateful expeditions or the detailed testimonies of the few who have returned. Portraits of the inhabitants, flags, artefacts, posters and jewellery are displayed alongside architectural models, drawings and records from the many expeditions.

Location and dates

The exhibition will run at the Italian Cultural Institute (25th July - 7th August) and Dundas Street Gallery (10th - 16th August) as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival.
