Seven illustrators on display to celebrate the bond between Soul and Body

Seven illustrators on display to celebrate the bond between Soul and Body

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Art

For there is ignorance [about] what is the nature of the soul, 
Whether it be Born or on the contrary find its way into men at birth, 
And whether it perish together with us when broken up by death, 
Or whether it visit the gloom of Orcus and his vasty chasm, 
Or by divine ordinance find its way into animals in our stead
” – Lucretius 

The relationship between Soul and Body is a relationship that goes back thousands of years. Born in Ancient Greece, the debate on this subject has tormented generations of scholars, philosophers, but also men of letters and artists. There are those who think that they are two distinct and separate entities, those who argue that one is stronger than the other and those who believe that both should be treated and cared for with the same importance because they are inextricably linked. 

In Milan, more precisely via Padova, there is a gym in which the training of the body is as important as that of the mind. Since its opening in 2015, the Heracles Gymnasium, following the teachings of the ancient Greeks, offers courses to invigorate the body through sports such as boxing, flanked by appointments that aim to stimulate the soul and mind. 

And so, what better place to host a collective exhibition that investigates the link between Soul and Body

The exhibition curated by Deborah Miseo will open on Sunday 9 February, starting at 5.30 pm, and will feature the works of seven Italian illustrators who have collected collaborations with national and international newspapers during their careers. 

DOVE:
Heracles Gymnasium, via Padova 21, Milano
QUANDO:
DOM, 9 FEB

The main hall of the Heracles Gymnasium will be invaded by the unpublished illustrations by Veronica Cerri, Sara Ciprandi, Luca D’Urbino, Marco Meloni, Daniele Morganti, Francesco Poroli and Antonio Sortino, who will present their personal interpretation of the theme. 

Once again art makes itself available to man’s doubts, trying to heal them or, more simply, trying to give a new vision and make us reflect.

Changing Time, the photographic project by Ramona Zordini

Changing Time, the photographic project by Ramona Zordini

Buddy · 1 week ago · Photography

Ramona Zordini is an Italian photographer and visual artist whose work focuses on ambiguity and transition, investigating the body and its plasticity.

Water is the theater of his shots. The bodies emerge revealing their sensuality and fragility. According to the artist, physical evolution comes from our moods.

Memory and the evolution of the emotional sphere are fundamental elements of our self-determination. But even if we are sure we can” seize the moment “and we realize the importance of every second, this moment has already passed.

Each piece of the puzzle must be replaced again in a never-ending cycle.

The powerful and seductive photography by Geoffrey Yahya Vargas

The powerful and seductive photography by Geoffrey Yahya Vargas

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

Discovering a world made of both lights and shadows is exactly what we find ourselves doing when we look at Geoffrey Yahya Vargas‘ shots. 
Geoffrey Yahya Vargas is a filmmaker and photographer based in Paris. The images are his means of communication and to achieve his work he experiments with different techniques, without setting himself any limits. 

In his portfolio in fact we find more or less conceptual short films and music videos, but what has captured our attention and our gaze are his shots. Made both in digital and analog, Geoffrey Yahya Vargas creates powerful and impactful imagery. 

The close-ups of the models he photographs hypnotize us and their profiles, emphasized by colored lights seem to seduce the viewer. 

The one photographed by Geoffrey seems like a forbidden world, where everything is focused on the body, gestures, movements and emotions. A quick glance at his Instagram profile will be enough to be sure.

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Buddy · 1 week 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.
