Another Photology AIR exhibition area derives from the new Belvedere Collectors area “project room with a view”, also adopted as an art-bookshop and devised for the most demanding collectors. The works of the four selected artists all engaged, in a different ways, to a “Prelude to preservation”.
Gian Paolo Barbieri (Milan, 1935) gives us the honour of an exclusive preview of his show Profondo Blu scheduled for 2020 with a selection of some large format images, following the exhibitions of Photology, Exotica (1995) and Tahiti Tattoos (1998).
Angelo Candiano (Modica, 1962) is a advocate of a philosophical and conceptual art and on this occasion replicates and simulates plant elements with sensitive photographic printing material, absolute manual art joined with the photographic process.
An intimate ballad of the images is disclosed by Mario Giacomelli (Senigallia, 1925-2000) in a series of photographic works Presa di coscienza sulla natura; around twenty vintage landscapes are on display, they have been corrected and edited during the press phase, intended to arouse the notion of how man destroys nature.
Finally Jack Pierson (Massachusetts, 1960) who was enchanted by plants and floral vegetation throughout a trip to the Amalfi Coast in the Nineties, presents us with a series of unpublished vintage colour prints.
