As we are fast approaching the opening of the #identitydialogueseurope exhibition, we are excited to present works by some of the photographers and visual artists represented in the coming exhibition. These past two weeks, we have highlighted works from four different authors in our social media sites. Now we want to dig deeper and open a reflection space regarding these chosen pieces of artwork:
Radiz Azdora, by Kate Buil
“Radiz” in Aragón (Spain), the land of photographers, means root, and “Azdora”, it is a very special word from the Savignano region (Italy), which defines a traditional strong rural women, the protagonists of the project.
Mayor Filippo Giovannini + the Rubicone river, by Sanne de Wilde
Sanne’s contribution to the project presents a series of portraits of iconic personalities of Savignano sul Rubicone (Italy). Double exposure portraits where the characters are portrayed with ‘something’ meaningful that represents their identity and connection with the local community.
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, by MARTIN THAULOW
This work addresses the current cultural and political dialogue within EU. The project raises questions about identity, perception and impact of newcomers. At the same time it questions our understanding and meaning of the term ‘home’. How does EU look today and in the future. What are the consequences of our policies in relation to refugees and living displaced? What obstacles do we face?
IDENTITY IN BETWEEN, by MARINE GASTINEAU
This series of portraits reflects on the life of the Senegalese diaspora in the Italian town of Savignano Sul Rubicone. This people live between Italian and Senegalese culture, somethimes with no real exchange between their community and the other people.
This project also question the mind and the subject of identity: how does it feel to be living in the in between? And this portraits are a way of telling this story, focusing on a visual metaphore playing around the light and shadows in their simbolic meanings.
