Ceccardi’s photos are not just simple landscapes. They are, instead, visions of nature which capture infinite tension. “It is as if time stops. We are faced with infinity and are in search of the finite; a subjective idea of the place, which also becomes a landscape.”
This language of opposites between man and nature is the same as that which we find in the second chapter of this photographic research, “Ordinary Chaos”; remote places with strong evocative power, which photographer Fabrizio Ceccardi affirms are a portrait of reality. The geographical location of the places is not of primary importance.
“Ordinary Chaos” is a paradox, a contrast. Here too, are landscapes and roads which suggest possible human presence, roads of infinite possibility which, in contrast, convey immobility. Based on his conviction that chaos is an order to be deciphered, Ceccardi’s research moves from ‘tidy’ to ‘ordinary’ chaos, directly questioning reality. The two series mix in an atmosphere of suspense, powdery colours, and antique tones. They are a portrait of the primordial forces which place man face-to-face with his innate desire for the infinite.
The exhibition is directed by Angela Madesani.
The inauguration will be held on Thursday 27th November 2014, from 6pm to 9pm.
