Elgreen & Dragset’s impressive exhibition at Fondazione Prada

Elgreen & Dragset’s impressive exhibition at Fondazione Prada

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Art

“Useless Bodies?”, is the title of the exhibition opened yesterday at Fondazione Prada by the acclaimed Berlin-based artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset

More than 3000 square meters of space in Milan where the artists have exhibited their works that encourage the viewer to reflect on the concept of body and physicality in the post-industrial era.

The sculptures that have “invaded” Fondazione Prada almost seem to be ghosts, phantoms that relate perfectly within the spaces of the foundation characterized by a sort of detachment and imperturbability due to the colors and materials of the many rooms that house the exhibition. 

Distributed in four different galleries of Fondazione Prada, “Useless Bodies?” aims to examine how the perception of the body and physicality has changed in our contemporary world. The audience is stimulated to try to give a new value to the everyday as well as question their own role both in the public and in the tried.

“Useless Bodies?” by Elgreen & Dragset in Fondazione Prada will be on view through August 22, 2022.

The best astronomy photos of 2022

The best astronomy photos of 2022

Tommaso Berra · 1 week ago · Photography

Space is mysterious and frightening territory, we observe from Earth phenomena that most of the time, unless you are an astronomer or very passionate, cannot be fully explained. Remaining are the fascination of seeing them from afar, observing celestial bodies, night skies and everything that inspires fantastic tales and makes us imagine the presence of other worlds light years away from us.
Some phenomena require patience because they are very slow, others are difficult to witness because they are extemporaneous, all of which makes photographing astronomical phenomena a very difficult task, and each year the best shots are awarded at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

3,000 photos entered in 2022 by photographers from 67 countries, including the winning one by photographer Gerald Rhemann, who managed to capture a rare event that made many look up to the sky last December. It was Christmas Day when comet Leonard crossed the sky over Tivoli, Namibia. Rhemann managed to capture the moment before the celestial body was blown away by the solar wind, and the energy-charged shot earned first place in the contest.
For the next 12 months the shot will be on display in London, at the National Maritime Museum, along with the other entries and divided into thematic categories (galaxies, sun, moon, landscapes…).

Tatiana Cardellicchio stops the motion of nature

Tatiana Cardellicchio stops the motion of nature

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

Photography, when it wants to convey universal emotions, has more strength when it is shared with other people from its earliest stages. Tatiana Cardellicchio owes much to meeting and collaborating with other creatives, who have inspired her, reinforcing an already clear idea of art that is enhanced when seen as a whole and not as individual shots.
There is often a human figure in Tatiana Cardellicchio’s photos, isolated in the world in a moment of pause, in which the perpetual motion of life seems to have been interrupted in favor of a more meditative relationship with nature and the elements that make it up.

The sea becomes a kind of baptismal water, the blades of grass in the meadow instead the perfect surface in which to abandon the body, often of a young woman, which does not impose its silhouette in the landscape but adapts to the rocks or the stool left in the corner of the room.
With a career as a photo retoucher and photo editor, the shots on the photographer’s Instagram profile show a more intimate look in which enhancing the plasticity of the body is a mission, as is blurring the edges between the human figure and nature, in a game of participation in the natural cycle that it is easy to want to be a part of.

Bodies in the wild in Lisa Strautmann’s photos

Bodies in the wild in Lisa Strautmann’s photos

Giulia Guido · 2 weeks ago · Photography

The balance between the human figure and the landscape is the key to Lisa Strautmann‘s shots. Born in 1988, Lisa Strautmann is a German photographer who has had a different path than many of her colleagues. In fact, she has earned no less than two degrees, neither of them in the arts or photography: the first in physical education and the second in psychology. 

Her course of study, however, led her to have the approach she has today to the photographic medium and the subjects she shoots. We almost always see one or more figures in the center of the composition, naked, in unnatural and contrived poses. All around are the colors of nature, from the bright green of the grass to the clear blue of the sky. 

With these images, Lisa Strautmann manages to merge her being an adult, feminist woman with a deep love for nature and the connection humans can make with it.
