Call Me By Monet, Guadagnino and Monet together on the collages of Mika Labrague
In the collages of the Filipino artist Mika Labrague the characters from Call Me By Your Name become part of the paintings of the French impressionist Monet.
Call Me By Your Name, the last film of Luca Guadagnino, nominated to several Oscars and winner of the one for the Best Adapted Screenplay, is a cinematographic poetry. From every aspect. From the photography of a kind of Italy different from the one you can see on postcards to the music of Sufjan Stevens, from the final monologue of Michael Stuhlbarg to the interiors.
Imagine to take all this beauty and make it live in the impressionist paintings of Monet: it’s what the Filipino artist Mika Labrague does with her collages, where Elio, Oliver and other characters of the film become part of painting from the French master.
Although Monet painted this places between the 19th and 20th century, the two worlds matches perfectly in an unique moment of visual beauty.
Mika collects her creations in an Instagram profile, Call Me By Monet.
