Let’s go to the moon with Luke Jerram’s installation

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Art

British artist Luke Jerram takes us to the Moon with his incredible installation characterized by a  strong visual impact. The huge planet measures 7 meters in diameter and consists of a sphere illuminated from the inside, on which are projected images of lunar surface provided by NASA. The Moon has been exposed in many countries such as France, Belgium, United Kingdom, India, and China.

Museum of the Moon, this is the name of the installation, is adapted from time to time to the location that houses it, with the aim of being extremely suggestive. It will be that after the eclipse of Bloody Moon the interest in this fascinating planet is conquering even the least romantic and that as the artist himself says:

“Since the beginning of human history, the moon has been a sort of ‘cultural mirror’ of our ideas, beliefs and ways of seeing the world. The museum of the moon allows us to observe the differences and cultural similarities between different countries. Depending on where the work is shown, its meaning changes radically”.

The images and the video you can find in our gallery are really spectacular, for the rest you can check the project website.

And would you like to go to the moon?

The most interesting film presented at Toronto Film Festival

The most interesting film presented at Toronto Film Festival

Andrea Jean Varraud · 1 year ago · Art

The Toronto’s film festival is coming to an end, it was a festival of social commitment. From this, more or less, independent cinema tsunami, we have selected three titles which in our opinion are the most interesting.

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan: a film of the now legendary young actor-director prodigy Xavier Dolan. It’s the story of a deceased television star seen through the lens of the letter exchange with one of his young fans some years ago. Through such narration, Dolan analyzes the consequences the epistolary relationship had on the lives of both protagonists. The film features a red carpet style cast such as the darling of television John Snow (Kit Harrington) sided by Natalie Portman, Jacob Tremblay, and Jessica Chastain.

Hold the Dark: is certainly a more commercial and perhaps less authoritative than the previous film but worthy of note. Hold the Dark, directed by Jeremy Saulnier and produced by Netflix, is a thriller based on the homonymous romance of William Girardi. The story, which takes place in Alaska, features a retired naturalist (Jeffrey Wright, recently seen in Westworld) entrusted with the task of tracing a missing toddler apparently captured by wolves. The story soon turns in a dense mystery set in a gloomy snowy country enveloped in darkness. The film will be released on the digital platform on September 28th. You can view the trailer here in the meanwhile.

If Beale Street Could Talk: is a movie written and directed by Moonlight Oscar winner Berry Jenkins now transposing on-screen James Baldwin’s homonymous novel. The story is set in the early 70s in New York’s Harlem district where a young couple (played by Kiki Layne and Stephan James) is ruined in a very short time by a false rape accusation. The family will do everything to try to set free the unjustly incarcerated protagonist before the child’s birth. The film will be released in US theaters on November 30th. We still do not know an Italian release date but given the warm reception, we are hoping it will be contemporary with the United States.

Uncommissioned Landscape Manipulation, the colorful ruins of Ligama

Uncommissioned Landscape Manipulation, the colorful ruins of Ligama

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

If you drive through the countryside surrounding Caltagirone, in Sicily, you may come across some ruins painted to perfection. This is Uncommissioned Landscape Manipulation, a project by Sicilian street artist Ligama and his team.

Born in 1986, after embarking on a university career focused on experimenting with new methods of printing, Ligama decided to devote himself exclusively to his art. After a long artistic research, he succeeded in an almost impossible task, to paint sounds.  Thanks to an algorithm created by an engineer who translates sounds into colors Ligama has painted the ruins of the Sicilian countryside following the noises of these places.

In addition, his work is also based on the relationship between real and digital, breaking down the image into colored pixels.

Ligama’s art needed a three-dimensional support and a place far from the metropolis, and these ruins, lost in the middle of the Sicilian countryside, proved to be perfect.  A true example of how art can give new life to the territory.

Emmy Award 2018, the winners of the Oscars for Tv shows

Emmy Award 2018, the winners of the Oscars for Tv shows

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

Every time an American street or boulevard is covered in red for an award, it makes the news.
Tonight at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles took place the seventieth ceremony of the Emmy Award, the Oscars of television. Directors, celebrities and actors from our favorite TV series came together to receive the famous winged statuette.

Some titles are new, others have already been heard, and still, others seem never to be lost, such as the award-winning Game of Thrones. The series based on the novels of George RR Martin continues to be talked about, bringing home the prize for the Outstanding Drama Series and the Outstanding Supporting Actor awarded to the nice Peter Dinklage for the role of Tyrion Lannister.

This, however, was the year of the great giants of streaming. Netflix’s The Crown received the award for the Outstanding Directing for the episode Pater familias directed by Stephen Daldry, and Clare Foy was awarded the Outstanding Lead Actress statuette in a drama series for her fantastic portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Relativity of Matter, an installation of mysterious corridors

The Relativity of Matter, an installation of mysterious corridors

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

A labyrinth of corridors to get lost in. The Relativity of Matter, the latest installation created by Levi van Veluw, takes the visitor into a universe far from any time or space.

For a year, the Dutch artist worked on the construction of this all-encompassing installation, creating a place that distorts reality through colors, atmospheres, and perspectives and challenges the viewer’s sensory perception.

With this 350m² installation, Levi tries to explore the dark themes of fear, loneliness, and loss of control. The Relativity of Matter allows you to immerse yourself in a world of disparate shapes, entirely covered with a dark paint that flattens shapes and objects.

More than an installation, it is a place that can be placed in a building, a museum or an exhibition space, to be lived in, letting oneself be completely transported by what one lives.

The Relativity of Matter is open until November 4 at the Domaine de Kerguéhennec in France.
