Urban Lights and selfie mania
Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art Gallery
22 November 2017 – 7 January 2018
Andrea Ingenito gallery in Milan hosts, from 22nd November to 7th January, the Vittorio Campana’s exhibition Urban Lights and selfie mania, edited by Clarissa Tempistini and with artistic direction of Piero Mascitti.
The artist wants to investigate on the relationship between photography and architecture, taking inspiration by the tradition of constructivism and experimental cinema. Vittorio Campana expresses his artistic point of view playing with lights that illuminate space, a new space, stage of an experimental photography.
The use of plexiglass, transparent holder, allows to go over printing plan. The subject of photo, in this way, thanks to action of light, goes on a second plan leaving to the spectator the possibility to follow different less conventional routes. Vittorio Campana faces us to an original and more intimate perception of photography; different visual plans add to several views of our being, and light, primary source of projection, is our personal interpretation of life and its flow.
The exhibition is completed by various “urban selfie” reviewed by the artist on pop art style and street dresses sketches signed by Camilla Benillà, young emerging stylist.
