Talking (About) Images
Curated by Francesca Lazzarini and Marta Rovetta
May 29th to June 12th 2018
Opening: Tuesday, May 29th 2018, 6 PM

Kunsthalle Graz, Conrad von Hötzendorf Straße 42A, Graz, Austria

After its first stage at Galerija Kortil in Rijeka, the reflection on the role and power of images in contemporary society proposed by Talking (about) images continues in Graz, at the Kunsthalle, from May 29th to June 12th 2018.
The project, curated by Francesca Lazzarini and Marta Rovetta for Cultural Inventory, with the support of the Region of Styria, develops through four exhibitions and as many inaugural events with eight artists of various nationalities and different means of expression – The Cool Couple, Severin Hirsch, Kate Howlett-Jones, Neža Knez, Maryam Mohammadi, Nika Rukavina, Alessandro Sambini and Christoph Szalay -, exploring the relationship between images and the reality they represent, the mechanisms that regulate their production and diffusion, the ambiguities that they can generate, but also their potential as a universal and shared language.
In fact, unlike words, images do not require translations to be read by people in different part of the world, being apparently a limitless tool for global communication. Nevertheless, their interpretation is anything but objective: images are intrinsically ambiguous. Due to their power of persuasion, images play a key function in the capitalist and globalised system: they are vehicles for ideology and one of the main weapons in the struggle over an arena of strategic importance today, the collective imaginary.
So Talking (about) Images focuses on images as an autonomous language: as in the participatory project and related installation Imag(in)e Ka-mi- ze by Neža Knez, that employs images as a children’s mean to design a better future; the work Lemmigs by Severin Hirsch, that spurs for an independent use of images and texts conceived as equal symbols; Maryam Mohammadi’s Memories Icon, that explores how images shape personal memories as well as their unconscious visual cultural effects. At the same time, the show reflects on the potentialities and limits of this language, or on its interaction with other means of expression. The work Everyday by The Cool Couple assembles meme GIFs underlying the influence on our existences of “secondary visuality”. In Kate Howlett-Jones’s Pocket Dictionary of the world’s Most Iconic Photographs every image-entry is defined by a poetic text resulting from mixed commentaries

La mostra, curata da Eva Comuzzi e Orietta Masin, giunte al loro terzo anno di collaborazione, investiga il tema dell’ombra, andando così a concludere un trittico iniziato nel 2015 con Time is running out, che trattava il tempo in tutte le sue possibili sfaccettature, per proseguire poi con Shine on you crazy diamond, che andava ad affrontare, più che il tema della follia, quello della nevrosi in rapporto alla frenesia contemporanea, conseguenza di un tempo sempre più accelerato.

Opening: Friday, June 16th, 5 PM
PAV, Via Giordano Bruno 34, Turin

Artists: Agreements to Zinedine, Enrico Ascoli, Lia Cecchin, Gaetano Cunsolo, Cleo Fariselli, Matteo Gatti, Alessio Gianardi, Paolo Inverni, La Distrazione del Fagiano, Filippo Marzocchi, Mount Fog, Giovanni Oberti, Mauro Panichella, Gianandrea Poletta, Serena Porrati, Lavinia Raccanello, Giulio Saverio Rossi, Ruben Spini, The Cool Couple.

Talks agenda: Enrico Ascoli, Atelier A, Chan, Regine Débatty, Alessandra Franetovich, Paolo Inverni, Kabul Magazine, La Distrazione del Fagiano, Leandro Pisano.

On Friday, 16th June at 5pm PAV inaugurates Teatrum Botanicum – Emerging Talents 2017, an experimental space dedicated to emerging artists involved in the natural and ecological artistic investigation unique to the contemporary art centre.

For three days, the space will be dedicated not to a conventional exhibition, but to actual events: performative practices, projections, talks and performances-lectures, DJ and live music sets free from a precise curatorial intention, but determined to reveal a conceptual nucleus ex post. The plurality of questions arising through these interventions merge in singular, broad- spectrum question. Starting from the idea that the concept of “environment” can be difficult to articulate in a univocal definition (the generic idea of environment as “that which surrounds a given element” can be variously described by multiple fields, from biology to physics, from ecology to computer science), how can we relate to it, as artists in primis? And in doing so, what could be a personal definition of the term or a wider discourse arising from the idea of environment? Continue reading

POIUYT project launch, Galleria Michela Rizzo, Venice 11 May 2017

 

POIUYT. The project

www.galleriamichelarizzo.net

The 11th of May at 12pm, during an event at Michela Rizzo Gallery, POIUYT will launch its website and the first of a series of publications linked to its activities. POIUYT is a platform for image-based research which aims at spreading a critical attitude towards this key language within the contemporary world through reflection, collective exchange and participation.

POIUYT, which is supported by MLZ Art Dep, Trieste, Michela Rizzo Gallery, Venice and Metronom, Modena, is a collective project developed by curators Francesca Lazzarini and Gaia Tedone together with artists Alessandro Sambini, Discipula and The Cool Couple. The first exhibition Point Zero. Critical practices in contemporary Italian photography, currently on view in the exhibition space in Trieste until the 18th of June 2017, introduces the founding group at the moment when their interests intertwine and their collaboration begins. Although they all come from a background in photography, they share an inclination to push its boundaries. The platform is a response to the urge of starting a collective reflection on the dominant role of images in our networked society and on their political implications.
