Photography Exhibition: “Striking Piazzas Of Sicily”, by Armando Rotoletti

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 settembre 2019

Toronto 09/13/2019. After 156 days of shooting; 7000km crossing Sicily coast to coast, east to west and north to south; 256 emails sent to municipalities requesting to free the squares of cars and catering equipment that would upset their appearance; Armando Rotoletti, renowned portrait and reportage photographer from Messina, offers to us in this book 82 Sicilian squares as we have never seen them. His squares lay empty in wait for the people to arrive, stirring our imagination, unnerving, bewitching, annihilating and surprising us.
The art historian, Salvatore Settis, says about the photographic book of Armando Rotoletti: “In Sicily, the square is a scenery that does not follow any script, but that of the pulsating life of its city. The square in Sicily (or rather, in Italy) is the most original creation of an idea of a city that not only acts as a den or nest but rather as the temple of humans, the theatre of political and social life. Therefore, Rotoletti’s enterprise is somewhat heroic (because of the difficulties surely met taking photos of squares without the thousands of contraptions invading them), but above all, it is innervated with beauty and hope.”
Armando Rotoletti was born in Messina, Italy in 1958. He studied at the St. Mary College of London and at the London Polytechnic (nowadays University of Westminster) and then he moved to Milan to work in photojournalism. Between 1985 and 1995 he produced a number of works which appeared in both personal and ensemble exhibitions. In 1990 he was invited by Grazia Neri to join her famous agency, thus starting his career as portrait photographer of renown people from the arts, entertainment and economics. His work was published on a number of magazines such as Corriere della Sera’s supplements “Sette” and “Io donna”, Vanity Fair and The Sunday Times.For the past fifteen years, he has also been involved in works dedicated to social investigation and photographic stories of his sicilian territories. Among his books: Casa della Carità. I volti e le storiw(2005), Barbieri di Sicilia (2007), Gente di Barbaresco (2013), Circoli di conversazione a Biancavilla (2013), Valelapena (2013), Scicli, città felice (2014), Vino e gente dell’ Etna, (2014) Il volto dell’ IO (2015) Noto. Le pietre e i volti (2015).With his most recent publication, Sicilia in Piazza (Striking Piazzas of Sicily, 2017), he continued investigating the land of Sicily by working on a complex project that lead him to photograph 82 squares of famous cities and other lesser known towns, by following a rigorous method of emptying the piazzas from cars and precarious installations: a magnificent fresco of these spaces, free -at least for the duration of a shot- from the visual conditioning of our age.

Henry Moore: The Shape of Things, Exhibition

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 7 aprile 2019

London – Christie’s presents Henry Moore: The Shape of Things, an exhibition at King Street of over 30 artworks tracing the four key thematic concerns that defined Henry Moore’s prolific and deeply influential career. One of Britain’s best-known artists, Moore radically redefined the boundaries of sculpture. Working in bronze, stone and wood, as well as creating a large body of drawings and works on paper, Moore constantly sought to challenge traditional artistic conventions in his art as he explored the aesthetic potential of form and space, figuration and abstraction, as well as internal and external states. The human figure was predominantly the site of exploration for Moore, from the poignant visions of humanity witnessed in the Shelter Drawings, to the undulating forms of the reclining figures and the tender evocations of maternity in the ‘Mother and Child’ works. A parallel concern for the artist was organic forms and the endless shapes and spaces created in the natural world. Henry Moore: The Shape of Things encapsulates this extraordinary diversity found in Moore’s art.Throughout his career, Moore had ‘an absolute obsession’ with the reclining figure. Not only did this theme serve as an endlessly adaptable subject for formal experimentation, it also allowed Moore to explore the synergy between the landscape and the human body, as well as the relationship between figuration and abstraction. In Reclining Figure: Blanket, the forms of the figure have been abstracted to become organic and fluid, recalling Jean Arp’s investigations into plastic form. The sculpture also appears to preempt the imagery of the sleeping bodies that Moore recorded in his war-time shelter drawings in the London Underground.In September 1940, on the fifth day of the London Blitz, Moore was forced to take shelter at the underground station at Belsize Park. Upon descending to the platform, he witnessed hundreds of people taking shelter during the intense bombing of the city. Profoundly affected by what he saw, Moore continued to return to these makeshift shelters, making notes and sketches before returning home at dawn and creating drawings from memory (he also used press photographs for inspiration). Featuring often-abstracted bodies rendered in a variety of media, the resulting works, collectively titled Shelter Drawings, present deeply poignant visions of humanity. From intimate vignettes of family groups, to panoramic vistas featuring hordes of people huddled together in the overcrowded tunnels, these works saw Moore achieve widespread acclaim. Tube Shelter Perspective from 1941 was included in the 1946 exhibition of Henry Moore’s work at MoMA in New York and in recent years was on loan to the Hepworth Wakefield.Like the reclining figure, the ‘Mother and Child’ theme is central to Moore’s art and occupied his imagination throughout his career. Rich in art historical precedents and filled with iconographic meaning, this universal subject also offered Moore the opportunity to experiment with the physical relationships between two figures within a single work. The subject of ‘Mother and Child’ first appeared in Moore’s work dating from the early 1920s. Carved in 1923, Two Heads: Mother and Child is the earliest recorded abstract carving of this important subject. Mother and Child: Petal Skirt depicts a seated figure with child where the folds of the mother’s skirt recall the rolling landscape, echoing his reclining figure motif. The family group provided Moore the opportunity to develop his observations, furthering his exploration of the spatial dynamics created by people. A rare 1947 plaster, Family Group, highlights the tender, nurturing familial bond and emulates the natural world.Moore had always delighted in the found objects and detritus of the natural world; he was an avid collector of fossils, bones, shells, driftwood and pebbles and used these organic forms as the basis for his sculpture. Inspired by the shapes and structures of these pieces, their surfaces or the rhythms that characterise their formation, Moore integrated these various characteristics into his work. In this way, he imbued his often-abstract works with a powerful energy and vigour. While many pieces are reminiscent of the landscape, some of his works appear like fragments of bones or vertebrae. Working Model for Locking Piece was based on bone fragments and like his mother and child and family group sculptures, the sculpture lays bare the relationships that exist between forms in the same way that they do between figures. Other sculptures, exemplified by Working Model for Oval with Points, have the smooth hollows and indentations reminiscent of the time-worn surfaces of rocks or stones.

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 settembre 2017

Alexander jakhnagievNew York Consolato Generale d’Italia 690 Park Ave, NY 10065 3 – 12 October 2017 Opening Monday 2 of October 2017 6:30 p.m. the solo exhibition “Colori” by Alexander Jakhnagiev.

Among the artist’s projects of great social and media impact it is worth to remember the “Crash Art” painting on accidented cars to raise awareness on road safety, hosted in front of the Italian Parliament in Piazza Montecitorio; “Umbrellas”, more than 2,000 painted umbrellas that completely covered a street in Assisi in a Land Art installation and still “Umbrellas” on the occasion of the Republic Day, during the Military Parade of the 2nd of June in the presence of the Italian President Mattarella; “Feet of Art” painting on the feet of the players of Perugia soccer team, whose prints on canvas were sold for charity to support children with leukemia; “Underground” and “Slavery” two performative works with homeless and with prostitutes of Rome.Alexander Jakhnagiev, son of the famous artist Ivan Jakhnagiev, has made over 100 solo exhibitions set up around the world in public spaces (the Italian Parliament, the European Parliament in Brussels) and private galleries. He lives and works in Rome.Jakhnagiev is a European artist. The bright colors of his works, his enthralling performances and his dynamic style tell about Europe and its people. They also talk about the plurality that characterizes the Old Continent and that made it a cradle and a bastion for freedom – both artistic and of expression. He is an artist of that European Italy that we are more and more bound to build. Benedetto Della Vedova Undersecretary of State – Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The exhibition of Andi Kacziba in Milan VÌOLA

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 novembre 2015

 

Andi Kacziba1Milan 10th December – 20th December from Tuesday to Sunday – 10.00 a. m. – 1800 p. m. Vernissage 9th December – 18.00 Studio Museum Francesco Messina, 4/A Via San Sisto (Via Torino) The exhibition of Andi Kacziba in Milan VÌOLA curated by Sabino Maria Frassà. Milan Municipality along with the Giorgio Pardi Foundation and the association CRAMUM, sponsored by the Hungarian Balassi Academy, Rome, present VÌOLA by Andi Kacziba, organizurated by Sabino Maria Frassà. The exhibition is taking place in the Studio Museum Francesco Messina, at 4/a Via San Sisto, Milan (Via Torino) from 10th to 20th December. It is about the reaction and the survival of women subjected to psycho-physical violence. For Andi Kacziba – ex model and ex photographer of Hungarian origins who has been living in Italy for years – our society is violent also in the way it represent itself and women. Mankind has evolved, men think they are forever young, but the biological and reproductive time is still the same as before. A woman who suffers violence often submits, modifies and nearly annihilates herself. “Nearly is the key word and the turning point for VÌOLA” – as Sabino Maria Frassà, the curator of the exhibition underlines – “Man can rise and develop from the inevitable violence and the unalienable sorrow”.
For Andi Kacziba the generative element of human existence is never Violence, on the contrary it is the strength not to bend, the strength to react and be different.” Andi Kacziba will receive the visitors in a secret garden made of ropes and chinaware inside the Baroque Church of San Sisto, in the heart of Milan, now Studio Museum Francesco Messina
Andi’s “garden” is not the Garden of Eden, a place where to take refuge and escape from the world. It is a place where to find the courage to look at the World as it is, so as to be able to recreate it and make it work better.In the middle of this gothic garden there are Saint Veronica and the great Termitai (Termitaries) . If Saint Veronica represents the portrait of a woman waiting for a miracle which can save her, the Termitai represent the resurrection which starts from one’s own forces. Like the Termites when they create their large nests – says the curator of the exhibition – Andi has learnt that sometimes to create a new life it is necessary to destroy the Andi Kacziba2past completely, to digest and metabolize it.
Born in Hungary in 1974, Andi Kacziba has been living and working in Milan since 1997. Her artistic adventure, which started as a model and photographer, has led her to reflect on the problems connected to the woman and the conflicts of body and mind. Modern beauty often pushes girls to bulimia and anorexia: they destroy themselves because they do not accept themselves. In 2012 she creates the cramum award with Sabino Maria Frassà. Her works have been exhibited not only in Italy but also abroad. In 2015 Frangit Nucem (Palazzo Isimbardi, Milano), Mater (Palazzo del Governatore, Parma), Sale terarrum (Villa Litta) and Oltre (Italian Cultural Institute, Budapest) have hosted her creations.
Giorgio Pardi Foundation has been working since 2008 to improve the quality of life of the new generations. The Foundation in a non – profit organization in memory of Professor Giorgio Pardi. It helps the best young people in Italy in order to fight brain drain. Its motto is “To know, to know how to do, to know what to be”. The Italians must learn to overcome differences and join forces to face a more and more complex world successfully.

MALÙ: a multimedia art exhibition by Invernomuto

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 ottobre 2015

malùToronto Thursday, October 8, 2015 – 6:30pm – 8:30pm Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 496 Huron St., Toronto Free admission. MALÙ is the first personal exhibit of the duo Invernomuto (Simone Bertuzzi, 1983; Simone Trabucchi, 1982) in Toronto. The exhibit wishes to present the recent path the duo is following, which explores Italy’s colonial past, a few exotic stereotypes of last century’s media and a selection of ethno-marketing cases in Italy. The exhibit consists in a central video – MALÙ – The Stereotype of the Black Venus in Italy – which is also the name of the exhibit, a bi-dimensional original work produced for the Italian Cultural Institute of Toronto and it includes a wall-mounted sculpture.
MALÙ – The Stereotype of the Black Venus in Italy is a video-essay screened at the exhibition Nero su Bianco (Black on White) (American Academy in Rome, curated by Lyle Ashton Arris, Peter Benson Miller and Robert Storr). This film examines the construction of the image of the black female body in Italian society, from the colonial age to modern times. The detrimental stereotypes that date back from the XIX century: the European fascination with Saartjie Baartman, the so-called “Hottentot Venus”; the reappearance of photographs of Abyssinian women commissioned by the Istituto Luce; in Italian cinema of the 60s and 70s; in the advertising campaigns of the 80s; more recently, in the media frenzy surrounding Berlusconi and Ruby Rubacuori.
TABÙ is a bi-dimensional work in Plexiglas that includes a series of icons and logos of Italian brands that, consciouslyistituto italiano cultura toronto or not, have created examples of ethno-marketing; coffee, chocolate and desert brands in particular. The work is a cataloguing of representations of black and African diversity: faces, masks deprived of their textual reference or their brand identity. The finish and the material of the object evoke contemporary corporate imagery.
During the 20 years of Fascism there was a cruel and racist nursery rhyme with Mickey Mouse as protagonist, who arrives in Abyssinia to kill “the Moors”, a derogatory term used to indicate Muslims and Berbers of North Africa. Topolino in Abissinia is a sculpture in resin of Mickey Mouse’s hand; the wall-mounted work seems to extend itself towards the audience to ask them an explanation and to shed a bad light on the reputation of the worldwide pop icon.

Exhibition Zebedee Jones

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 9 ottobre 2011

London, W1S 4JD12th October – 4th November, 2011 private view: 11th October, 2011Agnew’s Gallery, 35 Albemarle Street. This October, to coincide with Frieze Art Fair, Agnew’s continues its contemporary programme with an exhibition of recent works by British artist Zebedee Jones. His boldest and brightest show to date, Jones’ abstract canvases will be on display from 12thOctober 2011. Utterly abstract, devoid of any narrative or descriptive markers, including titles, Jones’ monochromatic paintings deny the viewers’ compulsion to map subject or meaning onto them. Each painting describes only its material existence – paint and surface. Yet, the palimpsest-like layers of paint and resultant built-up density give a sense of time – the timeliness of the process of painting. In this way his work can be placed within a traditional of Minimalist painting but also of process art, particularly as paintings which contain evidence of their own construction. The artist’s hand is so palpable that the voluminous texturing of the paint with brush and palette knife also evokes temporality. Rather than being illusory these paintings are suggestive of experience, firstly the experience of the painting, but by extension other experiences within our collective consciousness. Most obviously Jones’ paintings are suggestive of sensory experiences, which in part may be attributed to the artist’s life long hearing impairment. As highly tactile surfaces, a predominant part of perceiving these paintings is the memory of touch they invite. Moreover, Jones’ vivid use of colour demands visual investigation, sometimes betraying the colours of successive overpainting. The sculptural quality of the paint casts shadows across the surface, whilst the deep supports further add to the three-dimensional quality of the works. Thus each painting is aesthetically in a state of flux, varying according to subtle alterations in light, setting, and indeed the position of the viewer. ‘…stuck to the canvas edges in rolls and globs, trailing off them in strings and curls, it looks, for all its rich density, to be unutterably delicate and fragile, liable to shift, slide, drop off altogether or otherwise reconfigure itself at any moment’. (Michael Archer, Art Critic for the Guardian)
Zebedee Jones Born in 1970, Jones studied at Camberwell College of Art, London, Norwich School of Art and Chelsea School of Art and Design. (image001)

The exhibition: Canaletto and his rivals

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 ottobre 2010

London:  (Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as “Canaletto” (Venice, 1697 – 1768)  has been presented at the National Gallery of London on Tuesday 12th October. Open until 16th January 2011, the exhibition presents the finest assembly of Venetian views of Canaletto  and his 18th-century rivals to be seen in a generation.The exposition brings together around 50 major loans from the public and private collections of the UK, Europe and North America. The most important Canaletto’s works are juxtaposed in six rooms with those of his rivals to demonstrate different approaches to similar views of the city.Major rivals include Luca Carlevarijs, Michele Marieschi, Bernardo Bellotto and Francesco Guardi.All the painters describe Venice, a city of spectacle and magnificent buildings, regattas and grand civic ceremonies.Organised by the National Gallery, London, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and sponsored by Credit Suisse, the exhibition is curated by Charles Beddington, with Dawson Carr as coordinator curator at the National Gallery, London. Aristocratic travellers considered these “vedute” like souvenirs and they fuelled a highly competitive market.In the middle of 18th-century the Canaletto’s market was disrupted when the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) led to a reduction of the number of British visitors to Venice. The merchant Joseph Smith who acted as an agent for the Venetian artist, helped him to move to London to be closer to his market. Canaletto remained in England from 1746 until 1755. He produced views of London, including the new ‘Westminster Bridge’. “Venice: Canaletto and his rivals” presents the bests view paintings of one of the most beautiful city in the world. Even if the “Serenissima” economical power was declining, the city became one of the most elegant and refined in Europe. Venice seemed to prefer the peaceful world of art instead of the complicated political strategies.The Treaty of Campoformio (1797), by which Venice lost the independence, was getting closer but – as the painter Alessandro Marchesini said on July 1725 – in the Canaletto’s view paintings, “you still can see the sun shining”. (from l’Italoeuropeo Giordano Fenzi)
