Local Spirits


30.11. - 13.12.2023


Exibition by Agostino Perrone

Galerie Sara Lily Perez cordially invites you to Ago Perrone's latest solo exhibition, "Local Spirits," a visual odyssey that traverses the globe, from the bars of London to the tranquil repose of Italy, immortalizing the ephemeral essence of hospitality. Each photograph in this series is a vignette of life, a candid whisper of moments steeped in the allure of various locales.

Through the lens of his camera, Perrone unveils the soul of spaces that serve as crossroads of human interaction. In 'Connaught Bar', he frames the quiet focus of a bartender against the grandeur of an iconic institution; 'Friendship Goals' distills the warmth of enduring friendship in a single, timeless shot. 'Radiant Smile' is a testament to joy, with smiles being a universal language of welcome, and 'Service' celebrates the unspoken dialogue between host and guest, while 'Night Talk' shows a nocturnal spirit, a conversation shared on a warm evening, window open, the intimacy of shared stories. 

The exhibition will be on show at BIKINI BERLIN from 30 November to 24 December 2023, daily except Sundays from 11:00 am to 07:00 p.m.

Vernissage including music and refreshments on Thursday, 30 November 2023 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

BIKINI BERLIN, Galerie SLP at 1st floor, Budapester Str. 38-50, 10787 Berlin, S-/U-Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten

About the artist:

Ago Perrone (b.1978, Como, Italy) lives and works in London, UK. Perrone’s journey into photography has long been intertwined with his career within hospitality and mixology. Since taking over the reins of the famed Connaught Bar in London in 2008, Perrone's photography, much like his cocktails, has become a blend of creativity, humanity, and the art of capturing ephemeral moments. The bars he worked in and visited became his studios, and through his lens, he delved deeper into the essence of these vibrant scenes and the personalities that inhabit them. His photographs become a celebration of quiet emotion, capturing life as it unfolds, without waiting for the perfect moment.
