Curated by Gigliola Foschi and Nadia Stefanel
(2019, Singapore) – DZ Engineering SRL, a subsidiary of Dino Zoli Group, is proud to announce the official launch of photography exhibition, “Everything Is Illuminated” in Singapore, showcasing its dynamic display of innovative and high-tech lighting solutions for historical UNESCO and contemporary sites in Singapore and Italy. It will be held over the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix weekend, where DZ Engineering is the official provider of Race Track Lighting and Race Communication Systems. Audiences can expect to have a sight to behold this lit September!
From 18th to 22nd September 2019, DZ Engineering and the Dino Zoli Foundation (http://fondazionedinozoli.com/en/), an Italian-run Foundation dedicated to promoting and sustaining Italian culture globally, will be holding this exhibition at The Arts House in Singapore. This would be the third event organized by DZ Engineering and Dino Zoli Foundation, with each giving Singaporeans a more seasoned blend of the Italian culture and artistic lightings.
“Everything Is Illuminated” will showcase the twelve historical and contemporary sites in Italy, illuminated by DZ Engineering, through the works of six Italian photographers. Audiences will get to witness the beauty of archaeological ruins through the lens of these talented photographers as they interpret history and reveal contemporary culture on an artistic level. The vernissage will be held on the VIP Gala night, and will be officiated by Ms. Monica Zoli, CEO of DZ Engineering and Co-Founder of Dino Zoli Group.
In addition, the exhibition will also spotlight on certain iconic landmarks in Singapore, highlighting DZ Engineering’s past lighting projects and how they added light and life to these Singapore locations (shot by an Italian Track Designer, Jarno Zaffelli), namely City Hall and Supreme Court, Esplanade, Gardens By The Bay and the flagship store of Dolce&Gabbana at ION Orchard.
Since the first Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix event in September 2008, the same team of engineers who are in DZ Engineering today, has been commissioned as the in-charge for the Race Track Lighting and Race Communication Systems, and has lighted up the First Night Race in the Formula One History. DZ Engineering has been known in Singapore to be actively present in the MotorSport industry but as a matter of fact, it also has an impressive background in Artistic Lighting.
“We are proud to play a role in making the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix a great success again. It has always been our greatest privilege to provide tailor lighting solutions and installations for Singapore, like what we do in Italy,” says Roberto Grilli, General Manager of DZ Engineering.
“To shed light on what goes on behind the scenes for each event and to showcase the importance of full-turn-key solutions not just for Motorsport, we hope that the art exhibition will be able to tell a story to audiences and illustrate how lighting makes a difference in bringing various landmarks, from cathedrals to historic buildings, from football stadiums to international racing circuits, from harbours to industrial areas, to life.”
The Italian photographers behind the capturing of these astounding sights are namely Alessandra Baldoni, Luca Gilli, Cosmo Laera, Luca Marianaccio, Lucrezia Roda and Pio Tarantini. The Dino Zoli Foundation has carefully selected these six photographers, with varying experiences and ages across Italy. Therefore, adding a whole new perspective of history through different lens.
