Not That Kindle Guy, live from Dec. 15th 2020

Not That Kindle Guy
A new series by TCC. Every Tuesday on IG and FB

ITA (ENG below)

Siamo stati un po’ assenti negli scorsi mesi, lo sappiamo. Ma eravamo impegnati. Stavamo mettendo in ordine. E, facendolo, abbiamo ritrovato tante cose che negli anni sono servite per sviluppare la nostra ricerca. Abbiamo pensato di condividere i frutti del nostro decluttering raccontandovi ogni settimana un libro, la scena di un film, un album musicale o qualche aneddoto legato alle cose che abbiamo qui. Iniziamo il 15 Dicembre e andiamo avanti finché duriamo.
Potete seguirci su @the_coolest_couple oppure sulla nostra pagina Facebook. Se vi perdete qualche episodio, trovate tutto raccolto qui, sul sito. Basta andare alla pagina WHY.


We’ve been quite silent lately. We know. But we’ve been busy, reorganising our archive. Such a mess, but it was nice to go adrift into all those things that helped us develop our research. So, we thought it would be nice to share some of them with you: books, films, catalogues…
We’ll start on Dec. 15th and post a pick a week. Until we’ll get bored.
Follow us on @the_coolest_couple and Facebook. If you miss an episode, don’t worry. You’ll find all the reviews here, on our website. Just hit WHY in the main menu.

The Image as Process @Photo Open Up Festival, Padova 26 Sept. – 25 Oct. 2020

The Image As Process
Cattedrale Ex Macello
Via Cornaro 1, Padova
Sept. 26th, Oct. 25th, 2020
Curated by Carlo Sala, The Cool Couple

Artists: Francisco Alarcon, Claudio Beorchia, Filippo Berta,  Francesca Catastini, Federico Clavarino, Gloria Dardari, Achille Filipponi, Alessandro Laita e Chiaralice Rizzi, Luca Marcelli, Filippo Minelli, Caterina Morigi, Novella Oliana, Nicolas Polli, Jessica Raimondi, Fabio Ranzolin, Giovanna Repetto, Michele Sibiloni, Rocco Venezia, Lorenzo Vitturi e Tilo&Toni.

We’re honored we’ve contributed to curate this long and wonderful project.
The exhibition, part of Photo Open Up Festival, gathers some of the most innovative researches in contemporary photography presenting the work of twenty authors from different generation of Italian and European artists. The display, curated by Carlo Sala and The Cool Couple, presents a reflection on how images (be they artistic or vernacular) are always subjected to a process of reinterpretation according to the context – social media, smart devices, mass media, books, museums – or the historical period in which the public is situated.

We’re the winners of Artevisione LAB 2019!

We’re super happy to announce that we are the winners of the 2019 edition of Artevisione 2019, promoted by Careof in partnership with Sky Arte.
We were selected with our upcoming project, The Cute and the Useful, initially developed in South Africa thanks to IIC Pretoria and Nirox Foundation last year, which will become a film describing the complex and controversial wildlife industry flourishing in the country: a method of environmental conservation where the public and private sector are regulated by the market, whose application resulted in a 400% increase of the wildlife population in South Africa in the last 50 years.

Gallery.Delivery is both a group exhibition and a performance that can be ordered online. It will be delivered by bike courier in a “White Cube” courier bag to the address stipulated in the order, where it will be temporarily installed.
As the Internet increasingly penetrates every corner of our lives, this is giving rise to a mindset where we expect immediate availability in all aspects of our material world, triggered by a simple click or tap.
Gallery.Delivery applies this promise of immediate availability to the exhibition space and the format of the group show. However, unlike with normal delivery services, the courier doesn’t stop at the doorstep; instead, he enters the private home where he sets up the exhibition and offers the works for sale. In this moment, the process of setting up the exhibition takes centre stage as a performative aspect of the show.
