JR’s “Homily to Country”, from Italy to Australia

JR’s “Homily to Country”, from Italy to Australia

Giulia Guido · 9 hours ago · Art

After collaborating with Italian director Alice Rohrwacher on the short film “Omelia contadina” and presenting it at the 77th Venice Film Festival with a real procession, JR and his project have now arrived in Australia on the occasion of the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) Triennial

While in Italy the project was born to shed light on the dramatic situation of the Alfina Plateau, where the landscape has been almost totally destroyed to make room for hazelnut monoculture, in Australia, the French artsist has adapted the project to another critical situation, that linked to the decline of the Darling River (in local dialect Baaka or Barka), in the state of New South Wales.

The almost total disappearance of the river is the result of years of intensive extraction of water used for irrigation, climate change and drought and, as always, JR’s work aims to raise awareness of both the environmental and human implications. 

“I started this project in Italy, very far from Australia, yet farmers have similar issues : protect their environment and live decently from their work.”

Homily to Country” is developed in three equally important elements. The first is an actual procession that took place yesterday: local farmers carried giant pictures of themselves on their shoulders through the dry riverbed. 

The second is a chapel built inside the National Gallery’s Equiset Garden in Victoria with a series of stained glass windows depicting life-sized natural elements of the disappearing Darling River and the farmers themselves. 

Finally, to complete the project, there is a film that shows the making of the work and lets us discover the places that inspired JR. 

The installation and the film of “Homily to Country” are viewable until 18 April as works of the NGV Triennial and will then remain in the museum’s permanent collection

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

Federica Cimorelli · 3 days ago · Art, Photography

For some people photography is a hobby, for others, it can also become a profession, but first and foremost it is a form of expression and incredible discovery.
For Feli, aka Ophelia, photography has been gaining importance over time, and for the past year or so it has become part of her daily routine, but for a long time it was simply a seductive and fascinating art form.

Ophelia is 25 years old and lives in Hamburg, Germany. While studying to become a psychotherapist, she plays with analogue photography and creates intriguing portrait photographs.

Her photographic style is intimate, poetic and welcoming, putting the human body at the center of the discourse and using an essential aesthetic to tell the story of the purity of human emotions. The protagonists of her photographs communicate through their bodies, looks and expressions and convey opposite and complementary feelings.

For Ophelia, bodies offer infinite perspectives, variations and possibilities of abstraction. Portraying them in a photograph means emphasising their importance and reflecting their beauty and uniqueness.

See a selection of her shots here and follow her on Instagram to discover all her work.

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

The female body is a work perfectly composed over ten thousand years. A magnetic field. A map to explore. Every line of the body, the commas that compose it; the curves, the voids and the solids that the legs, the arms, the hips, draw in the background; its imperfections.

There is something extremely fascinating in the imperfect geometry of a woman’s body, however, it is done. Eric Marrian has noticed that, as a good architect of geometry and perfection, he has been taking care of it for a long time.

Marrian, with his photos, scrutinizes the symmetry of the female body, its generous curves, its sinuous features, its caressing softness, then giving it, through the use of color, the hieratic and the concrete perfection of the statues.

That body that we see every day, that we take care of, love, look in a distracted way, can compose that soft symmetry, that perfect geometry of lines and curves?

To discover it you just have to scroll through these shots or scrutinize the mathematically imperfect body of the woman who chose you.
