    Fellini At Work

    02 Sep 2020 – 30 Nov 2020

    FELLINISECCHIAROLI (ONE WORD) Between 1950 and 1970 the international film industry experienced one of its most glorious periods in Italy. A group of producers, directors, screenwriters, actors and scenographers, initiated (perhaps for the first time) the term “made in Italy”. Italian neorealism became a cultural genre that impacted society through literature and art. Some of the terms used in this extraordinary period became easily recognizable worldwide: Cinecittà, Dolce vita, Paparazzo, Fellinian... Among these characters, one would undoubtably be synonymous with Italian creativity: Federico Fellini. Fellni made his debut in 1950 marking, in a personal way, four decades of the Twentieth Century with an incredible series of cult movies: I vitelloni, La strada, La dolce vita, 8 e ½, Satyricon, Amarcord, La città delle donne , just to name a few. Fellini practically invented the identity of Italian cinematography, now known worldwide. His films have become a place of autobiographical acclaim; from the obsession of women to the poetry of the Italian province. Although it is most notable at work, behind the scenes of Cinecittà with the actors, or at the desk of a screenwriter or even with journalists for a press conference, that Fellini keeps his natural Gasconian character: “a fantastic fibber with a childlike vision of life” as some colleagues used to say. Reports from the sets recount of an endless series of gags, reinterpreting his Romagna roots with all it’s lunacy. This Photology exhibition “Fellini at work”, adds to this genius from Rimini, also the keen observation of Tazio Secchiaroli. Secchiaroli’s artistic photographic images of Fellini the “man” go beyond the “character” Fellini. Their symbiotic life on movie sets, production offices, and scenography studios, generate a chain reaction. Two characters in one, fellinisecchiaroli (as Ianus Bifrons) who, for almost 20 years, expanded Italian film culture to every corner of the world. As with a story of parallel qualities of a painter and his muse, this idyllic relationship adds value to each of their artistic careers. Even Secchiaroli’s renewal as a set photographer (on his Majesty’s Fellini secret service) essentially represents, with all its ambiguity, the vices and virtues of Country that was beginning to experience an epic era that still exists today in the everyones mind. Both of them, with all their metaphors and formations, lived a “filmic” life. As two of their fa mous epitaphs demonstrate – as if in a film reading the future, “Nothing is known, everything is imagined”, “It’s not true, but I believe it”. Davide Faccioli, Photology

    Hopperiana

    01 Dec 2020 – 28 Feb 2021

    Alienation. Solitude. Silence. Absence. Artworks by Hopper depict a metaphysic reality, and its living characters are constantly stirring between a will to survive and an inability to exist. A surreal and uninhabited world made of urban landscapes and home interiors, where a yearning and poetic feeling hovers in the air, communicating a strong sense of anxiety. A Hopper photographic eye which made him become an irreplaceable icon of contemporary art and a true inspiration for many artists. Among all, photo artists such as Luca Campigotto, Gregory Crewdson, Franco Fontana and Richard Tuschman. As in many Hopper paintings, silence pervades their photography. The scene is often crowdless, seldom some lonely figures appear with a dramatic strangeness and incommunicability. Photographers build up their staged visions recreating the same Hopper pathos. Among our selected artists we can view a typical example in feminine figures where they are represented detached from reality and fixing the void. They seem ethereal, inaccessible and lost in their own thoughts, representing a sort of a displacement in our society. Due to a global pandemic and despite a different form, nowadays we all find ourselves in social isolation. We we all live in a Hopperiana screenplay and suddenly what was being devised as a cultural metaphor and an artistic omen with the work by Luca Campigotto, Gregory Crewdson, Franco Fontana and Richard Tuschman, is now reality.

    Martin Parr

    03 Jun 2021 – 31 Aug 2021

    MARTIN PARR > BACK TO THE BEACH Martin Parr, one of the greatest contemporary photographer and photojournalist of our time, has been picturing beaches all over the world for over 40 years and we believe it’s now the time to dedicate a certain number of art exhibitions to this theme. "Back to the Beach" can be defined a bright ironic survey of our contemporary behaviors, which show through art what we truly are. People and situations in Parr’s photographs may seem kitsch and ambiguous but underneath they point out how we live and the way we would like to be seen. The exhibition will be available on Photology Online Gallery from 3 june to 31 august 2021.
