Greg Jager brings a new point of view to Genoa

Greg Jager brings a new point of view to Genoa

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Despite the fact that a year and a half has gone by, the effects of the collapse of the Ponte Morandi still affect the lives of hundreds of people. In addition to the deaths of 43 people, this unimaginable tragedy has caused the displacement of 566 people, who from one day to the next had to leave the areas closest to the skeleton of the bridge. 

Certosa is certainly the district of Genoa that was most affected by the collapse and it is here that Greg Jager decided to create his work, on the occasion of the project “On the Wall Festival“, curated by Linkinart.  

The work of the Roman artist is called Ricostruzione/Decostruzione (Reconstruction/Deconstruction) and it was realized on the external facade of the middle school Caffaro. It is an anamorphism, i.e. images that are entirely recognizable by looking only from a position, in this case from a precise point on the street. 

The artwork develops by playing with the forms of the school’s structure, covering an area of 600 square meters and was painted with the help of the residents of Certosa.  

“My provocation is to invite the viewer to find a lateral point of view to address the problems not only from a single frontal direction, but also looking for lateral solutions to change things from below. This message is mainly addressed to younger people. We cannot let the superficiality typical of the Italian people allow the classes of the future. It is no coincidence that I chose to work on a school.”

Marica Zottino and her pink and progressive illustrations

Marica Zottino and her pink and progressive illustrations

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Born in 1981, Marica Zottino, born in Jesolo and now living in Treviso, is a designer and illustrator specialized in the creation of patterns and patterns for fabrics. But it is her illustrations, the ones you can find on her Instagram profile, that have attracted our attention. 

Marica Zottino’s illustrations are simple and striking artworks, with a clear message that goes straight to the point. This frankness and universality have made one of her particular images become the manifesto of the battle to fight violence against women: a thong waving like a flag, accompanied by the words “this is not consent”

But it is not the only work that has struck us, even her series that aesthetically resembles tarot or a deck of cards does not go unnoticed. They are little reminders that Marica has made for herself, but they are perfect for each of us.

Isolation, Fabian Knecht transforms nature into an art gallery

Isolation, Fabian Knecht transforms nature into an art gallery

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Born in 1980, Fabian Knecht is a contemporary artist born in Magdeburg, Germany who, with his works, leaves the exhibition context, reversing the roles of art gallery and work. His last work is called Isolation and it is an immersive installation located in the middle of a forest near the German town of Buckow. 

Fabian Knecht has literally isolated a piece of land under a white tent and created a path that follows nature. In this way, he was able to enclose and isolate what visitors already see around them and arrive at the installation, namely the landscape, giving it a new meaning. 

Unlike many artists who try to bring or recreate nature into a museum, Fabian builds an art gallery specifically to frame the landscape. 

Traveling through Isolation from beginning to end, one becomes aware of the fact that sometimes we are not able to capture the splendor that surrounds us as it is. 

It’s like picking a flower to enjoy its charm, but not being able to see the beauty of a flowering field.

All the must-see October Netflix films and tv series

All the must-see October Netflix films and tv series

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

There we are, that time of year has arrived when it’s cold outside, we exhume the cover in wool, we stock up on herbal teas and chamomile and we are allowed to stand up to our friends to watch a TV series or a movie. So, if you have to schedule next month’s releases, it’s best to know which Netflix releases you’d like to put on your calendar first. 

Peaky Blinders 5: It starts with a bang. Tommy Shelby and his family will have to face many problems, from the economic crisis of 1929, to other English criminal gangs, ending with a nascent fascist party. The leader of the Peaky Blinders will have to fight on several fronts, trying in every way to keep the situation under control and, above all, his inner demons. 

The six episodes of Peaky Blinders will be available from Friday, October 4.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie: If you didn’t mark October 11th on your diary, you’re not a real fan of the small screen, because the film from the event series that changed the world of television is the most anticipated event of the autumn. 

Do you want to find out what Jesse Pinkman will do?

Baby 2: The Italian series by Netflix is back in the middle of the month. Although no official plot has yet been released, probably in the second season we will continue to follow the story of Chiara and Ludovica, always played by Benedetta Porcaroli and Alice Pagani, and their friends. 

Although the first season of Baby has not been praised by critics, Netflix has renewed it for a second that, like the previous one, will be composed of 6 episodes. 

Baby 2 will be available from Friday, October 18. 

Dolemite is my name: Eddie Murphy hadn’t been around in three years and now he comes back, fascinated by the giant of streaming, with a comedy inspired by a true story. The official plot that was released quotes: “When Hollywood turns his back on him, the talented Rudy Ray Moore continues to work to make the famous 1975 blaxploitation film “Dolemite”.  

Dolemite is my name will be available from Friday, October 25

The Kominsky Method 2: Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin also return as acting teacher Sandy Kominsky and friend Norman Newlander. If you’re not convinced, just know that the author of the series is Chuck Lorre, who among his works includes shows like The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Drama & Greg. 

The Kominsky Method 2 will be available from Saturday, October 26.

Kati Kohl and her minimalist and feminine illustrations

Kati Kohl and her minimalist and feminine illustrations

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Art

Her name is Kati Kohl and she is an Austrian illustrator who now lives and works in Lisbon. Kati has captured our attention with her disarming simplicity. The images she creates have the power to make us savor and relive sensations. She herself seeks inspiration from travel, from the oceans, from the nights illuminated by the moon and the people around her and when we look at her illustrations, starring only girls, we can not help but identify with theirs. 

The drawings are characterized by a strong minimalism and a use of colors that rarely deviate from the tones of pink, powder pink, beige and white. 

Discover a selection of Kati Kohl’s works in our gallery.
