CAMERA - Italian Center for Photography renews the relationship with the territory , after the successful collaboration with five independent art spaces in Turin through the “Futures moves to the city” project, launching a new project for the promotion of young Italian photography . “Futures” moves to piazza Carlina is a cycle of solo exhibitions dedicated to the work of talents selected, in 2020, by the Turin institution as part of the European Futures Photography program . The exhibitions will be hosted, from May to October 2022, in the showrooms in Piazza Carlina of Maradeiboschi and VANNI , for the occasion partners and supporters of the CAMERA project curated by Giangavino Pazzola .
The first exhibition scheduled, Three works , is that of the artist Marina Caneve (Belluno, 1988), which will open on Thursday 5 May 2022 , simultaneously at Maradeiboschi and VANNI, and will remain open every day until mid-June. In the following months, the exhibitions of Camilla Ferrari (Milan, 1992), Camillo Pasquarelli (Rome, 1988), Giovanna Petrocchi (Rome, 1988) and Marco Schiavone (Turin, 1990) will then be hosted, always in the same spaces and on a regular basis, experiences in which special projects linked to the paths of innovation and the values that inspire the activities of the two Turin companies will also be developed. Starting from three series of works created to date by the artist, Are They Rocks or Clouds? (2018 - 2019), Entre Chien et Loup (2020) and A fior di terra (2021), the exhibition itinerary underlines the ecological perspective on which Caneve hinges the stories told in his artistic production.
Through this filter, in fact, the artist tries to investigate phenomena such as the relationship we have with environmental disasters, the construction of the memory of places and the coexistence between natural resources and human beings. Through archive photographs, texts and images created from scratch, in fact, in Are They Rocks or Clouds? investigates the history of hydrogeological instability in the Dolomite mountains to explore the relationship between man, architecture and landscape. With Entre Chien et Loup, a project commissioned by the National Mountain Museum of Turin in 2020, Caneve moves between images found in the museum's archive and in the surrounding landscape, to build a network of relationships - real and fictitious - that build an imaginary place . With A fior di terra (2021), on the other hand, he involved the population of Lusiana Conco, a small town located on the Asiago plateau, in a self-ethnography on the theme of the extraction and processing of marble, a traditional primary resource for the local economy. With a questioning of the documentary function of photography, Caneve explores different topics and builds knowledge, with a specific interest in environmental, social and cultural vulnerability.
