Fair Art Fair x The Auction Collective (34/61)


Part of my project ‘Tarogramma’ that explores the people and artefacts of a fictional world. This locker key for 'The Holy Mountain Baths & Spa' is one of the most sought after items in the upper echelons of Tarogramma society.

The waiting list for processing is several years long and applications often go missing. The most common route for entry is through family ties or a well chosen marriage.

Damien Cifelli is a multidisciplinary artist and writer from Edinburgh, now based in London. His work explores a fictitious land named Tarogramma. Referencing the scale and compositions of history paintings and historical sculpture, he has built a detailed culture with its own aesthetic, way of living, and understanding of the world; one that is at once alien, and eerily similar to our own. The work is a visual representation of this alternative society-documentary images of a new world.
