10/10/2019 - Urbanautica Journal welcomes an essay by Gaia Vettori on the exhibition POST
Urbanautica Journal welcomes an essay by Gaia Vettori on the exhibition 'POST', which raises questions about the trespassing of contemporary photographic language. Curated by Steve Bisson, the installation combines the works from 3 Italian authors. 'FAIL' by Stefano Parrini focuses on the aesthetics of failure in archiving digital memories. With 'The Era of Beyond Truth' Giovanni Presutti simulates a digital parody that lists, alters, transforms imaginary personal profiles that mix fictitious and role identities. Good and evil look just the same. Between the lines of this dystopian writing still resists a need for the "resurrection" of the individual deprived of perspective; a need to reason about the role of recycling and preservation of images in an era of ubiquity and free dopamine. Andrea Buzzichelli's work addresses this issue.
The whole project was introduced first at Officine Fotografiche - Milano ('Sconfinamenti Fotografici - April 2019), at Lato Prato in collaboration with Sedici ('POST' - May 25th / 12th July) and at Ragusa Foto Festival ('Spaesamento Digitale' - July 26th - August 25th).
