Factum Fetishes
31 July 2019

On the morning of the 1st March, during ARCO 2019, the American photographer and artist Mariana Cook presented her new series at a private viewing hosted by Factum Arte: 13 black-and-white images inspired by the fascinating variety of patterns and textures unintentionally thrust upon the tools and objects in use throughout Factum's workshop, ranging from a painter's vest, cast salt, and a butcher's knife.

When Cook visited Factum Arte's workshop in Madrid, she was inspired to photograph the artisans' tools she noticed at the factory. In collaboration with Factum's printing team, a printed portfolio of thirteen images was produced combining aquatint and piezo technology. The physical effect of this invented technique affords a three dimensionality to the images.
Presented alongside the Factum Fetishes series was a collection of large-scale photographs printed on gesso-coated aluminium at Factum Arte.
