Tempesta Creativa

Ultimo sabato del mese, tutti i mesi.

Prossimo incontro: Sabato 28 Ottobre 2017

Via Coluccio Salutati, 7, 20144 Milano MI, Italia

Ardesia Projects nasce come piattaforma fotografica creata da artisti per artisti. Coscenti della solitudine che può caratterizzare il lavoro del libero professionista della facilità con cui si può rimanere intrappolati nella accogliente ragnatela del processo creativo, abbiamo deciso di lanciare una serie di incontri dedicati al supporto e allo sviluppo di progetti fotografici indipendenti, invitando liberi professionisti a partecipare a delle sedute di scambio creativo. I partecipanti sono invitati a portare una proposta di progetto o un progetto in via di sviluppo per discuterne e trovare appoggio nel processo creativo attraverso un percorso di ricerca e di scambio reciproco.

Il fine delle sedute è di provvedere ad uno spazio costruttivo privo di barriere, nel quale celebrare errore, sperimentazione e dialogo. Speriamo così di creare uno spazio ricco di stimoli in cui sia possibile crescere attraverso la condivisione di idee ed approcci alternativi.

Collective Hubs at Brighton Photo Fringe 2016

Michele Amaglio and Dimitri D'ippolito

part of Brighton Photo Fringe Collective Hub

Opening Saturday 1 October 5-11 pm

King's House, Grand Avenue Hove, BN3 2LS

1-30 October 2016

Ardesia Projects is hosting an exhibition at the Brighton Photo Fringe Collective Hubs at the Kings House venue, showcasing the work by two active members of the collective. Dimitri D’Ippolito and Michele Amaglio are two Italian photographers,both recently graduated from the University of Brighton. In the exhibition, their two most recent projects which consider social and economical issues of today’s society through an exploration of landscape.

Dimitri D’Ippolito’s body of work They Are Not investigates the phenomenon of money laundering in the UK, specifically in the city of London. Most of the financial businesses lead by these organisations take place in the British capital, right in the middle of the most important European financial pole. The sense of uncanny created by the obscured identity of the people portrayed allows the viewer to perceive the investigation’s arduousness and that of disentangling the subject matter.

With the body of work Traum Jesolo, Michele Amaglio investigates the visual aesthetic of the seaside resort town of Jesolo in the North Eastern coast of Italy. Hotels, fun fairs and clubs rapidly emerged in the landscape and contributed to the creation of a utopian perspective of collective optimism. Jesolo Traum represents a visual enquiry on the rapid change of aesthetics of Jesolo from the optimistic dream to the simulation of an exotic paradise.

Curated by Benedetta Casagrande within the context of Brighton Photo Fringe 2016, Ardesia Projects presents SCREENED, a showcase of photographic works by three artists which explore the technical characteristics of the camera apparatus in order to question the politics of vision embed in photography. British-based artists Seán Padraic Birnie (Magnum Photos/Photo London Graduate Photographers Award 2016 winner) and James William Murray will show new work alongside Italian photographer Alberto Sinigaglia’s critically acclaimed Big Sky Hunting. Placing emphasis on the humans mind’s capacity to create and imagine what it wants to see, SCREENED explores the obscurities and revelations of a medium always caught between darkness and light.
