Fiat Lucks by Sam BurfordFiumano Projects
Fiumano Projects is delighted to present the solo exhibition, ‘Fiat Lucks’ by British artist Sam Burford. The show will open Friday 29th September and run until Friday 27th October.
The title of the show is a playful juxtaposition that hints at aspects of Burford’s artistic practice of imaging with light; Lucky imaging being the modern practice of visualising distant galaxies using highly sophisticated photographic methods and fiat lux - from the ancient latin proclamation “let there be light”.
The show represents the final exhibition for Fiumano Projects before partnering with Andrés Clase to become Fiumano Clase in November 2017. Francesca Fiumano has been collaborating with Burford since 2009 and has worked on a number of solo and group exhibitions with the artist. Buford will continue to play an integral role in the development of Fiumano Clase.

Daniel Crouch Rare Books will bring a collection of six Ptolemy atlases, tracing exploration during the Age of Discovery. The work of Claudius Ptolemy, a Greek geographer and mathematician, was widely read during the Renaissance, and inspired a new generation of European cartography. The Ptolemy atlases represent not only the finest classical geography at the time, but also the latest developments in contemporary cartography: in them is the first map to show Japan; the first map to name America; and the earliest obtainable depiction of the Americas.
