Precisely twenty years after the first exhibition held in Taormina in December 1999 and the following editions (the last, GE/14 Altro dalle immagini,Other than images, in 2014), the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo of Turin celebrates this long cycle of exhibitions, which have significantly marked four decades of photographic research in Italy, with a new exhibition with the emblematic title GE/19 Boiling Projects.
Twenty-five artists will be the protagonists of the new event scheduled in Guarene d’Alba at the historic headquarters of the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo from next September 21. Twenty-five artists, including Luca Campigotto, Paola De Pietri, Alessandra Spranzi, Francesco Jodice, Antonio Biasiucci, Pino Musi, Carmelo Nicosia, Daniele De Lonti, Luca Andreoni, Tancredi Mangano and Antonio Fortugno, photographers who, back in 1999 were considered as “emerging”, and who today stand out as benchmarks for the younger generations. Since then, photography in Italy has walked many paths, even very different from one another, by broadening the horizons and, in particular, the sense that the image would like to convey today.
By highlighting once again its inborn fragmentary nature, photographic research presents itself as a pot of ideas and projects which, by fermenting, finally find solutions that are sometimes in line with the historical moment we live in, whereas some other times present themselves as escape routes or, again, as a mirror of existential conditions which can be seen in the works of younger authors such as Claudio Gobbi, Gianni Troilo, the duo formed by Tommaso Fiscaletti and Nic Grober, Gianni Ferrero Merlino, Francesco Cardarelli, Nicolò Degiorgis, Luca Pozzi, up to Renato Leotta, Marco Tagliafico, Paola Pasquaretta, Tiziano Mainieri, Elisa Crostella, Giuliano Severini and Francesco Di Giovanni.
Photographs, films, installations, performance documentation, narrations through images.
A collection of apparently heterogeneous “work in progress” that, as a whole, appears as compact in terms of expressive capacity and communicative mode.
